Important Artifacts and...

I am so enjoying Leanne Shapton's book Important Artifacts and... because it's simply the most original book I've ever read. It tells of the romance and downfall of the relationship between a Lenore Doolan and Harold Morris through the selling of their personal belongings. The book is set up as an auction catalog detailing postcards and notes sent between the couple, photographs taken of them at various points in their romance, as well as gifts given and received throughout the duration of their relationship. It's a fascinating read and I'm so glad I picked it up!
