London: moo・shwär'roo ltd., 1990. [38]pp; illus. Large 4to; saddle-stapled in coated purple wraps. Heavy crumpling/creasing to rear wrap, else very good, with mild toning to edges of leaves. Laid in to this copy are three 8.5 x 11" sheets, dated 1992, reproducing the texts from Pryde's hand-made artist's book, The Golden Years (1989).

An early bookwork by noted English artist Josephine Pryde (b. 1967), consisting of eleven first-person prose vignettes followed by eleven b&w photo-reproductions, presumably found, and enlarged in cases to the point of near-abstraction. The texts are on inward- and backward-facing themes, frequently familial, with images that evoke similar strains of nostalgia and melancholy. A scarce and desirable work by an artist short-listed for the 2016 Turner Prize. OCLC locates only 3 institutional holdings, including at MOMA.
