Bologna, Italy:: Angela Lorenz,, 1989.. Edition of 3000. 3 x 4" closed, extends to 34.7"; 24 unnumbered pages. Printed on a continuous strip then folded accordion style. Text in English and Italian. Angela Lorenz: "Discover Italian Monuments is a facsimile of a fold-out postcard book for tourists. But the tourists might be disappointed this time. Or they might be empathetic, especially if they have recently returned from Europe, as each monument is masqueraded with scaffolding, which obscures large portions of the architecture from view. Printed on the flip side of the color reproductions are the names of the twelve monuments in Italian, as well as a handwritten text in English describing the monuments' temporary, alter egos. "Bernini takes a bath," "Michelangelo censored," and "DisneyMiland" nickname the monuments in their transitional states, which may last anywhere from one to six years. "Discover Italian Monuments is more than a plea or a play on words. It's a reality." (Inventory #: 19749)
