Dorny, Bertrand (illus.)

1998. 6pp., accordion-fold. Personalized miniature book sent as a New Year's greeting to Anne and David Bromer. French artist Bertrand Dorny, who makes extensive use of color, texture, and collage in his designs, and his wife, Anne Walker, a fellow book artist who grew up around Boston, share a studio in Paris. Inscribed "Dear Anne + David, I send you my latest book to wish you a Happy New Year. Amitie, Bertrand and Anne." Dorny and Walker and the Bromers were friends for many years, bonding over their shared love of the art of miniature books. Characteristic of Dorny's mixed-media style, this miniature artist's book and the matching pull-out tray case are decorated with a collage of bold colors and designs to reflect the glittering parties and celebrations of the New Year. The design on the top of the case is red text on yellow, reading "Bonne Annee 1998." A unique item in fine condition. (2 1/4 by 1 5/8; 57x42mm). Item #25901
