Anatomia Botanica

I finally have time to post some of the images from the finished book. To read about the making-of, click here, here and here. After being in the group show, Finite Landscapes held at the UICB, the book was also shown at the Pyramid Atlantic Book Fair in Maryland, where it won the Maryland Institute College of Art Book Prize.

The deluxe and the standard edition. The deluxe edition has been bound using a modified paper case binding with case paper. The paper for the edition of ten was handmade using hemp and cotton fibers. The standard edition has been printed on Hahnemühle Biblio and bound in a drum leaf binding with a hard case

The deluxe binding comes in clam shell box with a set of three movable prints
