Diane Arbus: The Libraries

(Diane Arbus)
Diane Arbus: The Libraries
San Francisco, USA: Fraenkel Gallery, 2004
66 pp., 11 x 7¼", accordion fold in slipcase
Edition size unknown

Edited by Mary Bahr, with installation photographs by Megan Lewis, this volume documents the personal library (of books and objects) of photographer Diane Arbus, functioning as "a sort of x-ray of [her] preoccupations".

"This is a nice use of the accordion format to document a particularly linear strcuture with the added appeal of sneaking a look at what kinds of books & photographs this distinguished photographer felt worthy of collecting and preserving. Tucked into the back cover is a booklet that contains a detailed bibliography of all the books in this publication."
