missing transactions

52 Transactions by Kathy Slade - $20
Published by Trapp Editions/Sigurdardottir, in conjunction with Slade's year-long performance, "Fifty-Two Weeks of Transactions at the Lending Library." From September 7, 2006, to August 30, 2007, Slade borrowed one book per week from the main branch of the Vancouver Public Library. The transaction receipts have been compiled into an artists' book, representing one year of the artist's reading. As the book's endnotes explain, 1 transaction slip is missing due to a computer malfunction, and 6 more are missing due to a civic strike, resulting in 7 blank pages. Edition of 500.
