Visual artist Kiki Smith and writer Lynne Tillman collaborate in this artist’s book designed in the spirit of a small and intimate medieval book of hours. The work consists of twenty-four color photographs in dialogue with the sentences of a short prose piece titled "The Lost City of Words." Sentiments of loss, memory, and the ephemeral nature of life are juxtaposed with objects found in Smith's studio: sculptural works-in-progress, luminescent glass bulbs, dead birds, items found in a makeshift bedroom. The book is elegantly presented in a case of molded plastic and closes with a clasp in wrought metal designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec. Edition of 60.
