A Handful of Dust
A Handful of Dust, by artist and writer David Campany, is a speculative history of the last century, and a visual journey through some of its unlikeliest imagery. In 1922, a French avant-garde journal publishes a photograph of a sheet of glass covered in dust. The photographer is Man Ray and the glass is by Marcel Duchamp. It’s abstract, it’s realist. It’s an artwork, it’s a document. It’s revolting and compelling. Cameras must be kept away from dust but they find it highly photogenic. This unusually bound book includes a separate, loose volume held in a well in the middle of the larger volume.
This is a vg+ copy of the first edition and is signed by the artist.
