The reverse side opened up.
|A spread from the booklet by Virginie Loze.|
|An intriguing accordion that has a photographic substrate with the musicians rendered in pen and ink on the surface. The curious thing about this accordion is that although the subject is music there's no sense of sound, in fact its a peculiarly 'silent' work. Ana describes herself as an architect and self-taught illustrator illustrator from Coimbra in Portugal and the mother of 5 year old twins. 9 pages, single sided with each page 5.75" x 3.5" with a total length of 31.5"|

A funky and vibrant little artists' book from the Baltimore-based Mars Tokyo. With its corrugated cover and faux Ray Johnson bunny on the front to its inside strip of beautifully drawn psychedelic faces that pop out like a gallery show on steroids this tiny book packs a big punch!
Individual pages 1 5/8" x 2". 10 pages, fully extended at 1' 8".
Another cool addition to the Nobrow leporello series. This book's theme comes from Loris Lora's earlier project that "...started while attending the Art Center (Pasadena), which highlights the relationships and connections of creatives during a very innovative and exciting time period of design." The accompanying poster/booklet spells out all the different ways in which the figures in the accordion's assorted scenarios were connected to each other within this new architectural & design moment. Prominently displayed across the back of the poster/booklet is a quote from the design guru of this period, Charles Eames, "Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects... The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se."
Single pages 13.25" (height) x 7.75" (width). 20 pages, and fully extended at 6' 5.5".
