These five portraits of Rickels were originally made as book covers for Nazi Psych- analysis his three-volume scholarly publication. In the end, however, the portraits were reproduced as black-and-white images in the books. The title and doll figures in this portrait refer to an essay Rickels wrote called “Tot’s Tomb.” Of Nancy Barton, Rickels has said: “Barton’s ongoing work of mourning (or unmourning) inspired me to write about and with her. But what underwrites our collaboration of writing and light-writing is the hold the missing have on us and through us.”
