The Serving Library Annual 2020/21: (Objects)
Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey, Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, Vincenzo Latronico, David Reinfurt (editors)
Roma Publications, 2020
This year’s edition is published in tandem with a long-term installation of The Serving Library’s collection of (mostly) framed objects at 019, an artist-run space in Ghent, Belgium. Apparently, the sole common denominator of these objects – which range from paintings, photographs, and LP sleeves, to a can of green paint, a German license plate, and a Ouija board – is that they appeared as illustrations in an issue of ‘The Serving Library Annual’ or one of its immediate antecedents, ‘Bulletins of The Serving Library’ or ‘Dot Dot Dot’, sometime in the last 20 years. The present volume depicts the entire collection at the time of writing, arranged in chronological order of production.
