Facsimilie copy of the original book, complete with current essays
Sophie Ristelhueber's Fait, which in French means 'fact' or 'what was done,' remains one of the most powerful statements about the aftermath of war. In October of 1991, Ristelhueber photographed the battle-scarred landscape of Kuwait following the end of the first Gulf war with Iraq. Books on Books 3 presents all 71 black and white and color photographs as seen in the original artist book as it was conceived and designed by Ristelhueber. Marc Meyer of the Mus‚e d'art contemporain de Montr‚al contributes an essay that discusses Ristelhueber's disturbing yet beautiful achievement.
