Extant Collaborative Project

A book entitled "A Couple of Ways of Doing Something" has photographs by well-known photographer Chuck Close and accompanying poems by New York School poet Bob Holman.

This book is kind of weird/interesting because the photographs are all of Close's group of artist friends, some of whom are very well known names.

It' s a provocative idea for a book, one that seems a little snobbish(?) to me, but it also makes me want to read it and look at it, which is a good sign.

We have this book at Milner if you wanted to check it out. (Well, not now you can't, because I have it.)

Cheers to art and poetry!
