[BKARTS] New artist's books



I am pleased to announce that my two latest artist¹s books are now
available. For information on both DYSTOPIA and HEAD see below, for images
see my website (http://maddyrosenberg.com/). For any further information,
comments, or to purchase, just contact me at this email address.

DYSTOPIA
An artist¹s book produced by Maddy Rosenberg and
The Ink Shop Printmaking Center/Olive Branch Press, 2007
Dystopia is a voyage to a town that exits as only an amalgam of other
places. Open the cover and a three-dimensional city emerges, unfolds,
metamorphoses. Wander through streets constructed from bits and pieces of
sepia-imbued, historical Prague, Paris, London; turn a corner and you have
traveled to New York. You can ³read² Dystopia conventionally, page by page
or pull it into the third-dimension and watch it stretch across the surface
to inhabit its own space and yours. The town plays across the picture plane,
appearing flat. But skewed perspectives are hidden, seen around street
corners, through building cracks and archways, inverting any sense of real
space. Haunted and deserted, yet details of a human touch remain, as only
the hint of a shadow populates this carved city.

Edition size: 30
Book Dimensions: 9 x 4 x.5 inches
Medium: linoleum block prints on Stonehenge Fawn paper; hand-cut, folded,
and bound with digitally printed cover
Price: $750

HEAD
An interactive book revealing, uncovering, and juxtaposing drawn, printed
and photographed heads from past and present. Male, female, animal,
mythological heads, singly and grouped, dominate. Pages consist of pop-ups,
pull tabs, slides, doors and the images behind them and even a spinning
exquisite corpse. A combination of linocuts, drawings, and photographs that
are scanned in, colored, worked and then printed digitally. Masks printed on
front and back flaps to cut out and wear.

Edition size: 12
Book dimensions: 9 x 11 inches
Medium: Digitally printed on Fabriano Classico; hand-cut, assembled and sewn
Price: $500
