Panorama
Flying Fish Press, Berkeley 2008 - Hardcover. Number 67 of 100 copies. Signed and numbered by Julie Chen, who wrote, illustrated and designed this remarkable production. She is an internationally renowned book artist whose work has been in numerous major exhibitions and is in many public and private collections. Julie describes her book thus: "Panorama explores the issue of climate change from an artist's perspective, simultaneously expressing hope and helplessess in the face of this growing crisis. Opening to a full width of 5 feet, Panorama engulfs the reader/viewer in an experience both moving and surprising with large format pop-ups and interactive folded sections that interlace personal thought with aspects of a more universal reality." The book is beautiful but the message terrible, with dire warnings that your habitat is in peril and that everything is much worse than you thought. Letterpress printed from wood blocks and photopolymer plates and assembled at the Flying Fish studio. The book design and execution took a year to complete. Bound in dark grey cloth with yellow title label and cutout design to front cover. The box has same grey cloth and title label. Book measures 91/2 x 20 1/4 x 1 1/4 inches opening to a full width of 60 inches. Box is 10 1/4 x 20 5/8 x 1 1/4 inches. In fine condition. PRI/092314. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]
