I’m completely charmed by Alt/Saglio, a little journal of street photos of the French Vogue editors Emmanuelle Alt and Géraldine Saglio. It’s a bit of an art project, with quotes from a crazy mix of people—Einstein to Bruce Willis—and it’s a mystery. No author is given. I thought Ms. Alt might know something, but she did not respond to my email. The book suggests the obsession with fashion as culture.

"Relations between images and quotations are not only very clever, but often quite funny.  And the book has a visual quality i cannot exactly define, but very convincing."

"Text/Image Collection: by Wynn Dan" inspires the mind and the eye simply to revel in the trip you have laid out, page by page. The pleasure of viewing the (found) images, presented in a deadpan gray, exploring their relationship to the quotes, ruminating over the sequence of the images and text is a thoroughly engaging process. I marveled at the quotes you have assembled. A number of these quotes made me laugh outloud: words of wit and wisdom from artists of all persuasions and media, actors, authors/philosophers, in a collage of wonderfully strange bedfellows. And Alfred E. Newman and Sid Vicious, too. 

This is a very special project and one that successfully taps into and utilizes the format of the artists' book to wonderful effect. "Text/Image Collection: by Wynn Dan" is now in the Library's online catalogue, CatNYP, which you can pull up on the Library's website.

"Your book really touched a nerve."

"You should print a whole lot of books and distribute them throughout the world."

"Text\Image Collection is a quotation generated bookwork, where the quotes from famous men (and a few women) such as Sid Vicious to Hilton Kramer, from Dorothy Parker to Malcolm X, where quote and photographs make a big statement grab the mind, the imagination and the intellect all at once. The matching of quote to image is stunning, and this bookwork is a revelation. Small in the hand, softbound with 128 pages of photos that are perfectly matched to the short quote, but what a journey. A little book to take with you on any journey and let you imagine other journeys of the mind. Numbered edition of 500.
