Monte Carlo: New Edition - Collection R. Fanto, 1993. First Edition. Octavo. Unusual artist book by the creator of Presage, the long running fashion forecast journal. After retiring from Presage, Fanto turned her interest to Oscar Wilde and James Joyce. After creating Oscar Wilde themed playing cards with noted Joycean scholar Richard Ellmann, Fanto created this unusual artist book loosely based on Ulysses. Eccentric type layout and design runs along side bold woodcut images in a slightly baroque pop style. The “Contents of Images” in place of table of contents belays Fanto’s interest in nonlinear and modular reading. Near fine in illustrated glossy boards.
