Kevin Wildermuth, January 2, 2011 (view all comments by Kevin Wildermuth)
This book is a revelation. A cleverly constructed deadpan masterpiece presented as a series of banal photographs of mostly banal artifacts, whose "catalog" descriptions reveal the story. The reader is left to fill in the details which lie between the lines. A picture book for adults, just brilliant!

Absolutely brilliant--the story of a relationship as told through its physical remnants: books, old photographs, Christmas gifts, letters and emails, etc.; organized as an auction catalog. Trust me: you haven't ever seen anything like this before.

"Review A Day" by , "The critic Albert Gelpi once described how "the artist kills experience into art," exchanging some part of the vitality of experience for permanence because, "the fixity of ‘life' in art and the fluidity of ‘life' in nature are incompatible." Only the best artists find the delicate balance between art's fixity and life's fluid vitality, and in Important Artifacts Leanne Shapton shows herself such an artist." (read the entire Virginia Quarterly review)
"Review" by , "Yes, breaking up is hard to do, but reading about it has never been so pleasurable."
