Artist book.
Unpagniated. 1000 page all text flick book. 280,000 words. Paperback, sewn bound. 28x21 cm. Frith Street Books, London, UK, 1999. Edition of 1000 unnumbered copies. Excellent condition, as new.
This copy is dated and signed in black ink by F. Banner in the title page.

"The Nam is a 1000 page all text flick book. It is compiled of total descriptions of well known Vietnam Films, Full Metal Jacket, The Deer Hunter, Apocalypse Now, Born on the Fourth of July, Hamburger Hill and Platoon. The films apparently never begin or end, but are described in their entirety, spliced together to make a gutting 11 hour supermovie. Banner describes the films as if she is there, not influencing the plot, but always on set running along side the action. The Nam is a constantly present seamless account to the film; You might say that this book is the ultimate unedited text, a world in which nothing is prioritised, but everything. As you begin to know, you only see what you see".
