Smoking in art, Dreams, Cigarettes, artists' books


case bound in hard cover with exposed spine and paper covered boards; cover; interior spreads and pages. Using images of tobacco processing machines, wafting smoke, ephemera such as maps, hospital parking lot tickets and all the paper found in a pack of Camel cigarettes, the artist conveys his longing to be able to smoke in his dreams, a far safer option than smoking
