Dorothy Iannone – Pleased To Meet You Book



80 pages, 30x24cm, stitched softcover.

Very recommended third issue of this Artists Magazine now dedicated to the life and work of Dorothy Iannone, presenting a good overview of her work, with texts in english and french, and interview with her by Maurizio Cattelan, and a very nice selection of fullcolour photos as well as a much-needed full reprint of Iannone’s Tarot Cards which were previously only available as a very small edition multiple.

To present the artist as a rock star perfectly captures the ambition of this deluxe fanzine, whose third opus celebrates an artist, whose immense prestige approaches that of a goddess. Since the 1960s, Dorothy Iannone has delivered a liberating and fascinating body of work where the intimate couples with the universal and self-realization harmonizes with the great mythological narrative. In a disarmingly candid tone, the drawings from her (Ta)Rot Pack (previously unpublished and featured here in their integrality) resonate with an ardent message of love and a salutary hedonistic philosophy.

“Pleased to meet you. Hope you guess my name: Dorothy Iannone.“
