from Guy Debord

To Anita Blanc
3 November 1988
Dear Anita:

To renew "my" showcase,[1] which faces the one in which Radichtchev[2] is housed, I suggest that you display in it a single copy of each of these four books: Considerations, Spectacle, Comments and The Game of War (this to recall the variety of my talents). And I would be well-displayed, either above or below, in the company of four great scandals, which are [the books by] Sexby, Junius, and Cravan and [Orwell's] Homage to Catalonia. The fact that these are four Englishmen will constitute a good reminder at the moment in which Madame Thatcher travels to Poland to inspire Jaruzelski.


[1] The vitrine containing Debord's Comments on the Society of the Spectacle and located in the Editions Gerard Lebovici bookstore.

[2] Alexandre Radichtchev, Voyage from Petersburg to Moscow, which was published on this day [3 November 1988].
