Here is a series of beautiful shoes illustrated by Andy Warhol. À la Recherche du Shoe Perdu (In Search of the Lost Shoe, 1955) is a collection of eighteen photolithographs with watercolour addition. The illustrations were a collaboration with Ralph Pomeroy who wrote the accompanying text.

They are lost, but also not lost but somewhere in the world. Most of them are small, though two are larger, one a coat and one a dog. Of the small things, one is a certain ring, one a certain button. They are lost from me and where I am, but they are also not gone. They are somewhere else, and they are there to someone else, it may be. But if not there to someone else, the ring is, still, not lost to itself, but there, only not where I am, and the button, too, there, still, only not where I am.
