'I Also Fight Windmills' is a literary photobook by the Polish-British artist Ania Ready. It responds to literary texts by a modernist, trilingual author of Polish origin, Sophie Gaudier-Brzeska (1872–1925). By combining Ready’s photography and Gaudier-Brzeska’s writing, this book explores the themes of displacement, creativity, loneliness, and social exclusion. Through re-enactment and performative photography, it reintroduces an undeservedly forgotten and stigmatized writer.⁠

Photographs are presented on larger, thicker pages whereas literary texts are gathered separately on smaller, yellow pages to resemble Gaudier-Brzeska’s archive.

The photobook has been published as a limited, signed and numbered edition of 300 copies. Each copy contains a manually cut out page which resembles the first draft of Sophie Gaudier-Brzeska’s novel.
