Rachel Whiteread’s first London studio was opposite to Lesney, which produced the “Matchbox” cars until the 1970s. The Ex Libris edition helps to see the work of this sculptor in a new light, who for years has been concerned with casting and moulding and with the concept of the model. The edition includes coloured screen prints and a pewter concrete mixer.
