This monograph of works to date by Nina Mae Fowler, explores her practice through the words of cultural figures, from prominent curators, film and art theorists to acclaimed playwrights and Hollywood film directors. This multifaceted approach has resulted in an in-depth and varied commentary on the artist’s unique work and contemporary society’s relationship with fame.

The collector’s edition is presented in a hand made pale silver slipcase and includes a fine art print of ‘Measuring Elvis’, a new work created to celebrate the publication of this monograph.

The book itself, is 200 pages, with a beautifully simple, cloth–bound, hardback cover – echoing the blackness of an empty auditorium. Inlaid onto the front is a circular image plate, which has been created using a new process of white ink, printed on black paper.
