Peep Show
South Orange, NJ: BeastlyBeasties' Books, 2011. First edition.. Paperback. SIGNED. First edition. NEW. Artist's hand-bound expanding tunnel-book with illustrated protective wrap-around sleeve; 7 panels; 8 x 10 inches. From an edition limited to 5 copies and 2 artist's proofs, this being #2. Signed and numbered by the artist on the back panel. This limited edition artist's book presents a thicket of hand-drawn monsters layered one after the other in a Victorian-style "tunnel-book." The viewer looks through the peep-hole at the front or over the top of the opened book to see a series of fanciful creatures, eyeing one another as if for lunch. As the back panel is moved forward and back, different scenes present themselves and new animals come into focus. BeastlyBeasties is the name of the studio of artist Ann Vollum. She's known for her delightful drawings of exotic imaginary critters, covered in intricate, tattoo-like designs. Born in what was then Rhodesia, in southern Africa, Vollum's pen-work references her earliest memories of indigenous tribal patterns. Vollum produces hand-bound artist's books, limited edition prints, t-shirts and various art-objects from her BeastlyBeastie drawings and designs.
