Douglas Gordon's The vanity of allegory / [organized by Nancy Spector] ( Book )
4 editions published in 2005 in English and German and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
L'étiquette de l'emballage plastique porte: "Douglas Gordon's The vanity of allegory" is a folly, a playful collage of an exhibition conceived by the artist for the Deutsche Guggenheim in Berlin. As a veiled self-portrait of the artist, the show focuses on the intersection between "vanitas", as a meditation on the ephemeral nature of life, and self-representation, as an act of vanity and a play to remain immortal. Bringing together a diverse selection of art objects and films, from Perugino's "San Sebastian" to Walt Disney's "Peter Pan", and from Jeff Koon's "Louis XIV" to Luchino Visconti's "The Damned", Gordon provides tantalizing clues to his own sources of inspiration. This catalogue contains a booklet with a critical essay by exhibition curator Nancy Spector and an illustrated postcard of each object in the show, with a text explaining Gordon's rationale for its inclusion."

Valentino : objects of couture by Valentino( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With specially commissioned photography, this unprecedented volume celebrates a legacy of accessories design by the legendary couture house of Valentino. This lavish tribute to the couture house of Valentino's accessories line is exceptionally timely: since the long-time accessories team, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, took over as the creative directors for Valentino in 2008, the house has experienced record-breaking success and received international acclaim. Known for their daring approach redefining femininity, Chiuri and Piccioli's continuance of accessories design has only magnified the line's popularity. Equally important is Chiuri and Piccioli's transformation of traditional Italian handcraftsmanship into a new international barometer of glamorous design. By infusing the highest quality materials and crafts with streetwise attitude, their accessories have become some of the most coveted items in the fashion world. Valentino: Objects of Couture showcases commissioned images and artworks by various well-known artists -- David Bailey, Luisa Lambri, Nobuyoshi Araki, Duane Michals, Scheltens & Abbenes, Philip Lorca di Corcia and Douglas Gordon -- of over 300 of the house of Valentino's most well-known accessory designs. Art directed by REM-Ruini e Mariotti and along with an insightful essay by the art curator Francesco Bonami, this work presents a rich volume in celebration of Valentino's exquisitely designed collections. This book is perfect for devotees of fashion, style, photography, and glamour, and also anyone who understands that a Valentino handbag or heels, even when paired with jeans, is statement-worthy"--Amazon.com, viewed November 21, 2013

Punishment exercise in gothic by Douglas Gordon( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in Undetermined and English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this artist's book Douglas Gordon has self-reflectively processed his conceptual approach, which is always aimed at the viewer as an artistic subject. The always identical hard shot of his own face after a 'demolished night' - inclusive of a laceration - is confronted with a minimalist prose. It dives into the depth of this wounded face/this seemingly wounded psyche, sometimes the drugs are mentioned, then the feelings, the jokes ... the combinations are left to chance." [Publisher's statement]

Douglas Gordon : Timeline by Douglas Gordon( Book )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his most well-known works, Scottish artist Douglas Gordon addresses the familiarity and popularity of moving pictures by manipulating, reframing, and superimposing them to alter viewers perceptions. His works provoke feelings of anxiety, recognition, and amnesia with respect to the circumstances of the reception of media today. This retrospective of Gordons work presents thirteen significant works by the artist, including 24 Hour Psycho (1993), Between Darkness and Light (After William Blake) (1997), and Play Dead; Real Time (2003). By forcing new encounters with the familiar and confrontations with the willfully forgotten, Gordon exposes the distance between our dimmed, distorted memories and, perhaps, the truthemphatically demonstrating that what he sculpts is not only media but time itself--Description provided by publisher
