La Fille du Docteur / The Doctor's Daughter (Signed Limited Edition).

New York: Thea Westreich, 1991. First Edition. Quarto. SIGNED by Calle to colophon and hand-numbered as 197 of 230 copies. Bound in faux leopard skin. Playing with the trope that "every sex worker is somebody's daughter," Sophie Calle here juxtaposes 18 black-and-white photographs of herself performing a striptease with facsimiles of congratulation-cards sent to one Dr. Calle on the birth of his daughter Sophie. (In real life Calle's father Robert was both a collector and an oncologist). The cards are housed in glassine envelopes affixed opposite the vellum-printed photos, with English translations provided on following pages. One of Calle's most enduring artist's books. This copy fine; housed in the original cardboard box with printed label to top panel.
