Autobituary is a visually rich book of images from Anne Bean's original performances 1969 - 1973 and photographs of her subsequent re-staging of those performances made during 2005.
It will be a book within a book, comparing two sets of photographic 'evidence' from two almost identical sets of performances made years apart.
It contains three newly commissioned essays by Guy Brett, Sally O'Reilly and Miria Swain, and includes a DVD of Anne Bean's Shadow Deeds performances.
