Dear Love Who Should Have Been Forever Mine / Marie Jacotey


  • With the book "Dear Love Who Should Have Been Forever Mine" Marie Jacotey presents a collection of unique drawings and texts, slowly revealing the fictitious correspondence between two former lovers trying to piece together their story.
  • Jacotey has worked closely with design duo Stinsensequeeze to develop a unique binding, which allows the reader total freedom in how they approach the work.
  • The book is made up of 30 individual artworks, loosely folded and gathered into two sections, each corresponding to the perspective of one of the protagonists.
  • Part introspection, part emotional exchange, the visual correspondence can be read in multiple ways: in a series as part of a continuous narrative, individually as unique artworks, or even placed as a large-scale installation, to literally ‘map out’ this surprising love story.
