My Kingdom for a Title

Edition size unknown
New Documents have just announced My Kingdom for a Title, a collection of writing by Chicago–based artist Pope.L documenting his use of language as a mode of visual, narrative, and performative story telling.
"The act of writing has been integral to how Pope.L works and is arguably the most consistent element in his practice. These works take various forms: scripts, short stories, scribbled notes, large scale installation, and painting—many never before released. Assembled here for the first time, My Kingdom for a Title allows the breadth of the artist’s engagement with language to be fully assessed. Within the book, Pope.L’s work is supplemented with extensive endnotes sourced by artist Kandis Williams."
The title is available at the pre-order price of $45 from the publisher, here. A signed, special edition accompanied by a three colour silkscreen print is also available.
