In The Impossible Collection of Art, Ségalot and Giraud curate the ideal contemporary collection- a collection in which money is no object and anything is possible. Whether "impossible" to obtain or available at the tip of a paddle, these works are remarkable on their own, but as a collection they form a unique perspective on contemporary art. Capturing the essence of today's art world that is at once rarefied, deified, and revolutionary, this limited edition volume presented in a linen box was assembled using the traditional anglaise technique and color-tipped by hand on art-quality paper. Each page bears the unique imprint of the artisan.

First published in 2008, this volume offers more than just a printed museum with artworks very rarely displayed and owned by private collectors: Pablo Picasso's Yo, Picasso (Self-Portait), 1901; Georges Braque's Le Pont de la Roche-Guyon (The Bridge at Roche-Guyon), 1909; Robert Delaunay's Disque Simultané (Premier), 1913; Giorgio De Chirico's Mystery and Melancholy of a Street, 1914; Egon Schiele's Selbstbildnis mit kariertem Hemd (Self-portrait with Checkered Shirt), 1917; Francis Picabia's Parade Amoureuse (Love Parade), 1917; Alexander Calder's Satnding Mobile, 1934; Fernand Leger's La Belle Équipe (The Beautiful Team), 1944-45; Mark Rothko's No. 2/No. 7/No. 20, 1951; Cy Twombly's The Blue Room, 1957; Piero Manzoni's Achrome, 1958; Roy Litchenstein's Eddie Diptych, 1962; Andy Warhol's Eight Elvis, 1963; Bruce Nauman's My Name As Though It Were Written on the Surface of the Moon, 1968; Jeff Koons's Rabbit, 1986; Luc Tuymans's Der Diagnostische Blick IV (Diagnostic View IV), Takashi Murakami's Hiropon, 1997; Rudolf Stingel's Untitled, 2000.
