Agee hand-painted, collaged, and altered the pagination of this found volume with playful layers of paper cutting. What was at once a minimally illustrated, black-and-white codex has been awaked by Agee’s signature urban/folk style illuminations. Far from simply obscuring the original intentions behind the book, Agee’s ecstatic artwork enlivens and converses with the ghosts buried deep within the pages of this 1950’s art catalog.  

Collage, papercutting, and illustration on a found book, text in Korean and English. Glued binding with custom box. 8.25″ x 6.5″ x 1. 110 pages. Unique. 1995.
