PLACES LIKE THIS HATE PEOPLE LIKE YOU

No Drawing No Cry

A bittersweet artists’ book published after Kippenberger’s death to complete the Hotel-Hoteland Hotel-Hotel-Hotel trilogy. Whereas the two “Hotel” books are respite with his “Hotel” drawings, No Drawing No Cry contains only faithful reproductions of unadorned hotel letterhead. Pages and pages of it. Only one drawing can be found within. A woeful tale conceptualized by Martin prior to his death in 1997.

In 2003 I started filling Kippenberger’s empty No Drawing No Cry books. The complete collection is archived here online.
