Bitter Chocolate
Berkeley: Flying Fish Press, 2016. Hardcover. Fine. Hardcover. Number 33 of 50 copies, numbered and signed by Julie Chen. "An exploration of chocolate through the lens of fact, fiction, and culture. This book weaves together a fictional mythological narrative with historical facts and the artist's own personal experiences to create a portrait of chocolate that is both lyrical and unsettling. The Jacob's ladder structure allows for four distinct presentations of content. The book is first unfolded into accordion format, presenting the reader with visual and written content on each side. Then the page panels can be flipped over within the hinge straps that connect them revealing the second half of the content. The full meaning and impact of the story is only revealed when all four parts of the content are discovered and read" (Julie Chen). Bound in brown cloth boards with gilt titles to front and rear covers. Letterpress printed from polymer plates on a variety of handmade and commercial papers. Beautifully illustrated by both Julie Chen and Keri Miki-Lani Schroeder with text by Julie Chen. Housed in a brown cloth covered box with paper title label to front cover and magnetic closure. Size: 3.5 x 14.75 x 1.875 inches when closed; 25.75 inches when opened fully. ARTB/031617.
