Following a break-up letter telling her to "Take Care of Yourself", Sophie Calle responded by asking 107 other professional women to respond instead. A mixture of words, images and film make up this collective analysis of the "Take Care of Yourself" message. The book accompanied Calle's exhibition in the French Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2007.
