BODY OF INQUIRY, Scientifically Capricious, yet Unequivocally Misleading..inspired by Torso Woman.

Berkeley: Set in Motion Press, 2011. 9 x 15 (closed) opening to 28 x 14. A standing triptych -- in 6 panels--which recalls a 19th century anatomical atlas. There is letterpress in 4 panels on each side. Torso Women, in the center, holds a sewn codex with numerous printed flaps. Bound with faux leather and elephant hide. Tiny scrape to lower rear cover. Fine. Item #17183

"It is a book of display and intimacy opening to a large format with tiny details investigating the marvel of our physicality. The panels are composed of early laboratory instruments, absurdly grandiloquently representing our endeavor to measure and understand the uncertainties of the world. The larger panels explore atoms, cells, and genetic structure." One of 57 signed copies written, illustrated, printed letterpress, and bound by the artist Casey Gardner.

Price: $1,250.00
