[BKARTS] Ravages of Time - Artist Book Release



We are pleased to announce the release of our latest artists' book
collaboration - Ravages of Time.

 

   Ravages of Time is an Artist Book created by black and white photographer
Thomas Lascell in collaboration with Drew Luan Matott, a paper and book
artist. It is comprised of a series of twenty-four black and white
photographs, plus cover and end pages, depicting the power of weather and
time on man made structures and artifacts. Completed in the autumn of 2008,
the artist book features both accordion and gate fold pages designed to be
viewed one page at a time in a traditional manner, or by pulling out one of
four accordion arrays, to view a 'gallery' or sequence of six images at a
time. Viewers are also able to experience other arrays for viewing by
selecting their own unique page fold options. The 8" x 8" x 1" square format
is meant to be viewed closely in hand; the tactile feel of the handmade book
and the unique page turns are as important as the images themselves. The
images are from original silver gelatin prints, scanned to digital, printed
on Stonehenge 100 pound paper; the text was printed on a Universal
Letterpress III. A limited edition of thirty was hand-bound by the artists.
The books are numbered and signed by the artists on the colophon.

   Because of its unique design and construction, copies are intended for
college libraries and 'book art' archives to be accessible to aspiring book
artists. A limited quantity will be available for sale to individual
collectors. For more information or to purchase a copy of Ravages of Time,

collaboration were shown in exhibit at the BluSeed Gallery in Saranac Lake,
NY in June of 2007. A proof was also exhibited at Northern Kentucky
University and at the University of Alabama in October 2007, and was
included in a book arts exhibit at SUNY Oneonta in January, 2008. A proof
