Publisher's description: Originally conceived for an exhibition in Afghanistan, Tacita Dean's (born 1965) c/o Jolyon consists of 100 original prewar postcards from Kassel, Germany, over which the artist painted contemporary views of the same sites in gouache. The postcards were originally mailed "c/o Jolyon" to the former CEO of the Aga Khan Trust for Culture in Kabul, Jolyon Leslie. The name Jolyon had a particular resonance for Dean, as it was her father's middle name, taken from a character in John Galsworthy's The Forsyte Saga. The first 50 postcards of c/o Jolyon were shown as part of Documenta 13 at the Queen's Palace, Bagh-e Babur in Kabul, Afghanistan, in 2012. Published in a limited edition of 300 copies, this book reproduces the 100 postcards in full color.
