from Guy Debord

To Giorgio Agamben
24 January 1990
Dear Giorgio Agamben:

I consent to the idea of publishing the two books in a single volume,[1] but on the condition that they are in this order: Comments . . . (1988), followed by The Society of the Spectacle (1967), the first being printed in a slightly larger type.

Your preface will be very useful, at least in explaining the apparent paradox; and of course many other points, I have no doubt.

Since you will be in Paris in February, I propose that we get together on Monday the 12th at 5 pm at the bar of the Lutetia, which is at the far end of the hotel's hall.

Quite amicably,
Guy Debord
