A witty and elegant visual exchange around the uses and functions of chairs doubles as an excuse to address a number of the artists’ interests and working methodologies. A conversation that has developed through years of friendship, deep admiration and understanding of each other’s work, this book presents Baldessari and Bloom at the peak of their form.

It should be said that Baldessari’s penchant for depicting noses in his work extends as far back as 1965 with the conception of “God Nose”, one of the artist’s very few pre-1965 paintings to have survived. Here, with his onestar press edition, Baldessari conceives a book about a nose, with a nose, wherein the artist’s famed subject appears and disappears upon a series of pages, in one fluid sweep.
