This book is not a catalogue raisonné, it instead takes a look at the library of an amateur, an excuse to apprehend this aspect of Richard Prince’s work which encompasses books and the question of the collection and its incompleteness, revealed here by the ” ghost” of the missing books.

Richard Prince is an avid collector of books, an obsessive one. This fervor is visible in The Good Life of American/ English, where he photographs covers of books from his collection, reducing the book to an image, a simple surface.
