In 1962, while living in Paris, Dutch painter, sculptor and editor of The Situationist Times Jacqueline de Jong completed a set of 11 woodcut engravings. Danish painter and writer Asger Jorn decided to publish them, along with text, as an "erotic novel." Over the course of the next decade they jotted down playful, sometimes sexually explicit notes to each other on exhibition flyers, cocktail napkins, even an unused sheet from Memoires, Jorn’s famous collaborative artist’s book with Guy Debord. In the end, the book project outlasted the relationship between the two artists, and so was never published. This artist's book collects the woodcuts, as well as their correspondence and notes in facsimile.
