The Time Machine.
Loket, Czech Republic Jarmila Sobota 2013 - A one-of-a-kind miniature book produced by the innovative Czech artist Jarmila Sobota, signed by her to the colophon. H. G. Wells's classic work of early science fiction is presented here in a sculptural binding. The book fits into one of two channels on a wheeled, metal time machine that was custom fabricated for Sobota. The text is printed on green paper, referencing the Palace of Green Porcelain that the Time traveler encounters in the future world of the Morlocks. Bound in grey calfskin with watch parts set into circular niches on both of the covers. Boxes were created for each part of the object, covered with calf skin, hand-decorated paper, metallic paper and silver snakeskin. The title is stamped in silver around the sides of the box for the "Metal Machine," and to the spine of the clamshell box that houses the book. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
