Chris Marker Owls at Noon Prelude: The Hollow Men by Adrian Martin and Raymond Bellour
Owls at Noon

The Institute of Modern Art in Brisbane, Australia has published a volume entitled Chris Marker: Owls At Noon – Prelude: The Hollow Men. Their site offers the following description:

A heavily illustrated study of French filmmaker Chris Marker’s portentous video installation Owls At Noon Prelude: The Hollow Men, with essays by Adrian Martin and renowned French film theorist Raymond Bellour, introduced by Robert Leonard. / $20

Thanks to Adrian Martin for the tip. He mentions that the book features “an incredible pictorial layout largely designed by Chris [Marker] himself.” He also drew our attention to the current issue of Rouge, which publishes his translation of an insightful & prophetic essay on Marker from 1963, “Markeriana: A Scarcely Critical Description of the Work of Chris Marker” by Roger Tailleur.

We’ll send it anywhere in the world for that. And with the current exchange rate, that’s an especially good deal! It was about $20.00 US, when I looked earlier today.
