Niki de Saint Phalle, Traces, Editions Acatos, Lausanne, Switzerland, 1999

This autobiographical accordion was published by Editions Acatos as both a catalogue and documentation of an exhibition of Phalle's work at the JGM Galerie in Paris which presented the original manuscripts and drawings for the book as well as a set of bronze sculptures.

The texts are broken up into sections in which Phalle (1930-2002) comments upon and describes memories from her life and art. Included at the end is a biographical listing of events, exhibitions and artistic collaborations between 1930 - 1998, with a final image of Phalle with her daughter Laura, and grand daughter & great grand daughter!
