Melancholia -- Limited Edition Artist's Book
This book was my opus my first semester of graduate school.
Walking the blurry line between book, toy, and art object Melancholia exists in its own genre. Inspired by medical books that feature transparent pages to allow the viewer a deeper glimpse into layers of the body Melancholia instead reveals layers into an emotion.
Hand produced and constructed by Lisa Perrin this piece is made from sturdy, heavy weight Bristol paper printed with archival Epson inks, card stock, ink jet transparency pages, graphic tape, glue, eyelets and ribbon.
Melancholia is ready to be given as a gift or displayed on any surface with her exquisite inside panels exposed or hidden. All is revealed to see (inside).
Melancholia measures 5 inches wide x 7 1/2 inches tall x 1/2 inch deep. Numbered Limited edition of 50.
