L.I.E Lists of Ten Books by Mark James & Christopher Green (Eds.)
Published by L.I.E (2013)
The aim of L.I.E Lists of Ten Books is to get a better understanding of how a book, be it personal, functional, or purely an object of desire, sits within someone’s collection, or library. Since 2011, Mark James & Christopher Green have been inviting key proponents of ‘the book’ to submit a list of ten important titles that form part of their personal book collections. Twenty contributions are included from Ed Ruscha, Katrina Brown, New Jerseyy, Olivia Plender, Charlotte Cheetham, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Jem Southam, Jeff Eaton, Benjamin Sommerhalder, Lionel Bovier, James Jenkin, OMMU, Marco Kane Braunschweiler, Layla Tweedie- Cullen, Jeremy Millar, Alec Finlay, Fraser Muggeridge, Torpedo Press, An Endless Supply, Axel Wieder. These specific lists are the contributor’s ten ‘most important’, and thus relative to the time the list was compiled. They are a documentation of a specific moment in time.
