Holiday Recommendation Guest Post #6: Tim Ryckaert

Rob Pruitt, Tommaso Speretta (ed)
Rob Pruitt’s eBay Flea Market: Year 1
Venice, Italy: Bruno, 2015
[unpaginated], softcover
Edition size unknown

"Flea market is a  a project by Rob Pruitt where everyday he posts an item on Ebay: worn clothes, silly items., etc. He sells the most diverse objects- for ridiculous prices mostly. Each item then comes with a signed print- showing the object on a cloud and sky background. (If you type Rob Pruitt in ebay you will find them).

Rob Pruitt's bookclub is similar: every day he sells a selection of his books. Mostly sets of two books - the selection of books are based upon funny combinations of titles, or for example a book about Norway + a tourist guide, etc., etc. Each book then is stamped with a bookmark indicating that it comes from his 'Bookclub collection'. These are similarly ridiculously low priced - sometimes you're the only one bidding and then you buy the items for 1 $ (+ shipping costs). I've done it a few times and it's always a good service. The items arrive quickly.

I like this project a lot! He also made a book which includes all the of the sold items and indicates the price that they sold for. It's like a biography of the artist through things he didn't need anymore.

It's published by b-r-u-n-o in Italy, though it's not on their website yet. But you can find it elsewhere,
for example:"
