Kimono/kosode : a decorative study of the kimono by Carol Schwartzott( Book )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the unwrapping of a graceful garment's may layers KIMONO KOSODE invites you to explore. A simple repeated design - the smooth, matte surface of each section - beckons one to touch it; a cut-out kimono reveals a hint of what lies underneath. Unfolding the pages once, and again, displays the many panels of color. Kimono/Kosode has a piano-hinge construction of six rigid sections, each forming one trifold page. The book lies flat, but when displayed on edge with the pages flipped open, a tiny multi-dimensional theater appears and the kimono becomes a window. Each trifold section also contains an attached text, giving a brief descriptive hsitory of the kimono. These pages are printed letterpress on hand-dyed Japanese Yohko paper, floating, thin and gossamer, against the matboard surface."

Awake in the dream world : the art of Audrey Niffenegger by Audrey Niffenegger( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Otherworldly, provocative, and strange, Audrey Niffenegger's art is a vital a part of her vision as her bestselling novels The Time Traveler's Wife and Her Fearful Symmetry. Awake in the Dream World is a mid-career retrospective of Nifffenegger's work, reflecting her talent for cultivating a captivating narrative exclusively through pictures and her own confrontations with life, mortality, and magic. Niffenegger's fantastical body of work is reminiscent of renowned pen and ink predecessors such as Edward Gorey, Aubrey Beardsley, Egon Schiele, Edward Dulac, and Horst Janssen, but with a brutally honest and unapologetically strange female perspective that touches upon the universal trials of life - death and decay, love, jealousy, redemption, and the inevitability of change. Her works on paper, lithographs, and aquatints reflect the often surreal narratives of her artist's books. Through self-portraiture, Niffenegger reveals her own self-assurance and whimsy alongside anxiety and loneliness, probing darker corners of the human heart and mind, often exploring the hopeless struggle with what Shakespeare called 'this bloody tyrant, Time'

Thoughts on color, color of thoughts by Beth Weiss( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Wondrous Mystic Art,' a poem by William Massey, comprises the center of the limited-edition artist's book and serves as its theme. Weiss selected quotations by painters, wirters, and musicians about the artistic process to accompany phrases from the poem. These she interpreted in callifraphy and screen-pritned as the 20-page text. A circular cutout in the heavy cover highlights the title log. Marbled paper, which covers the spine, complements the visible title page. The artist placed the pages horizontally and vertically in a 10-inch square format so viewers looking at one spread can also see snatches of prevous and subsequent pages. This intricate layout conceals and reveals several visual puns."
