From a series of art magazine advertisements that the artist redacts, here leaving only his own name - the remaining words have been excised with a knife.
As with most of the Nothing Else Press publications, this will be available for sale at the London Art Book Fair later this month (along with a launch of five new titles) or now, from www.nothingelsepress.com.
