Another Book for the Wishlist!

My Friend Marie just alerted me to the soon-to-be-published Ephemeral Bodies: Wax Sculpture and the Human Figure. Co-authored by Georges Didi-Huberman, author of another of my favorite (though very theory-heavy) books Invention of Hysteria: Charcot and the Photographic Iconography of the Salpetriere. This promises to be a good one; I seriously cannot wait (and have, in fact, already pre-ordered two copies!)

Oh my goodness, thanks for the heads-up! This looks amazing. I'm off to place a pre-order....

I'm feeling slightly disoriented here: EPHEMERAL bodies? Ahem. . . .! They really owe me a copy of this, gratis. ;)
