The accompanying book of fourteen black-and-white images Does "The accompanying book of fourteen black-and-white images" mean: 1. The brochure of the exhibition. The exhibition was composed of fourteen black-and-white images. or 2. The brochure of the exhibition. The brochure included fourteen black-and-white images. Context: Ristelhueber followed Fait with Everyone (1994). Ostensibly about the hostilities in the former Yugoslavia, the images were actually of anonymous scarred bodies taken in Paris hospitals. When the images – hugely blown-up – exhibited in Utrecht at the Centraal Museum, visitors assumed that the pictures were from the former Yugoslavia. The accompanying book of fourteen black-and-white images included an excerpt from the first written document to describe war as one man inflicting violence against another rather than avenging the gods.

I would not use the word 'brochure' and 'book' interchangeably. A brochure is usually printed on a single piece of paper or card stock and folded into three or four "pages". A book, on the other hand, could be dozens or hundreds of pages and is bound in some way. "Of" fourteen pages means it is made from that many total pages.

Hi Pineapple, #2. The number refers to the brochure and not the exhibit itself. I hope this helps. Thank you, Stephen
