CALLE, Sophie. L’Hotel.

(Paris): Editions de l’Etoile, 1984. First edition. Paperback original. Calle’s controversial artist’s book is the result of three weeks spent working as a chambermaid in a hotel in Venice in 1981. She tried to construct a narrative of the lives of the guests by examining, itemizing and photographing their personal belongings and the condition the room was left in. The book contains her observations in the form of a surveillance log accompanied by her photographs. (Text in French). A near fine copy, in dust jacket. The black jacket has some very minor wear to edges and a small nick at base of spine. A nice copy of this scarce book.
