Secondary Colors. A Collaborative Book.
The Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers, 2012. 4 x 7. Twenty-one gatherings by as many book artists. Bound by Todd Pattison in deep citron morocco inset with shapes in marbled & gilt papers. Fine. Item #17349
Inspired by Paul Theroux's three essays on orange, green, and purple, the artistic techniques vary. Most are in the form of a foldout, accordion-fold, pop-up, or a combination of these--making this a thick book. Most are signed by the artist. One is nature-printed with ferns. There are dyed & marbled paper & tyvek specimens. Each of the 21 copies was uniquely bound by the artists.Two additional bound copies were donated to institutions; and one set of sheets was auctioned to benefit the Guild.
