The exquisite book : 100 artists play a collaborative game

  • 2010
San Francisco, California: Chronicle Books
  • No colophon.
  • From introduction: "This book is a game, and it goes like this: The first player draws a picture (a scientist gets shocked by a live wire), then passes it on to the next person, who continues the story with a drawing (an incomplete time machine). With each pass, the story continues (Abraham Lincoln riding a triceratops). The one rule is that each player is only allowed to see the preceding page. When the last page is complete, the entire series is revealed, and all players see how their pictures fit into the story.
  • This game is a modified version of Exquisite Corpse, which was invented by the Surrealists in the early 1920s."
  • Contains biographies of the 100 artists, such as Henrik Drescher, who contributed to this book.
  • Not signed.
  • Unnumbered.
