Andrew Rottner collaborated on this tribute to printing’s golden age.   The story, by Christina Lauritsen,  mis-remembers H.C. Andersen’s classic tale of the same name, transforming it into a story of revelation and madness.  The visual progression of the book mirrors the plot, pitting the beauty of the decorative arts against the intense and unpredictable messiness of human experience.   This book confronts the inevitability of loss as well as bows to intellectual freedom and its attendant risks.  The book is 7″ x 9″ x 1″, with images (drawn by Andrew Rottner) and text letterpressed on to rich giclée backgrounds.  The book features two 26″ wide foldouts and a cut-marbled-paper and brocade cover.

Edition of 50, 2012.
