The Thing Quarterly is an “object-based publication” consisting of useful objects. Issue 22 is by LA-based conceptual artist John Baldessari. It consists of two 100 percent cotton sateen pillowcases featuring an image of a woman clutching a pillow. The black-and-white image is taken from a Hollywood film still in Baldessari’s collection and has been silkscreened on each pillowcase with environmentally friendly, water-based ink. The 320 thread count pillowcases are standard-sized and envelope-style, and are produced entirely in San Francisco.
