I, Robot: Three Laws of Robotics - Sobota, Jan and Jarmila - 2007. [1381686]
Jan and Jarmila Sobota, (Loket, Czech Republic 2007 - Sixteen panels, accordion-fold. One of thirty copies. Signed by the artists, Jan and Jarmila Sobota. A short but pointed exigesis on the words "robot," which was first used by the Czech playwright Karel Kapek, and "robotics," first used by the Russian-born Isaac Asimov in one of his short stories. According to the Sobotas, the word "robot" derives from a Czech word meaning forced labor, or serf. The accordion-fold panels on which the text leaves are mounted fold ingeniously into a compartment in the back of a 2 3/4-inch tall metal robot, who wears an ear to ear grin. A metal panel closes the compartment, and is held in place by a magnet affixed to the back of the robot's head. The front of the robot is engraved with three lines: Karel Kapek / I, Robot / Isaac Asimov. Housed in a suede-lined folding box, which has the appearance of metal. Mint. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
