In 2004 the duo Jimbo Blachly and Lytle Shaw began to do installations and performances in which they pretended to be the editors of the papers of the Chadwicks, a mysterious family of connoisseurs, dandies and amateur historians. The plausible and the fabricated switch cushioned seats as the editors attempt to unravel the byzantine history of the Chadwick dynasty. This book includes numerous photographs of the Blachly-Shaw assault on the art world, along with a judicious selection of the Chadwick papers now known to be extant.
