Susan Hiller - The Artist's Palette Alphabet

Susan Hiller has compiled a postcard alphabet from her ongoing project Homage to Man Ray. With reference to her first book Rough Sea (1976) this compilation allows the reader to rediscover and reuse an archetypal form of collective memory. The images in The Artist’s Palette Postcard Alphabet may be sent as postcards, the book subsequently becomes fragmented memories.

The book was printed in an edition of 500 copies on the press of Che Huber for Boabooks, on the 3rd of September, 2013 in Geneva. Switzerland.
