Miniature artist's book.

Dorny, Bertrand (illus.)

(c. 1998). 7pp., accordion-fold. Personalized miniature book sent to Anne and David Bromer by French artist Bertrand Dorny. Dorny and his wife, Anne Walker, a fellow book artist who grew up around Boston, share a studio in Paris. Dorny and Walker and the Bromers were friends for many years, bonding over their shared love of the art of miniature books. A handwritten message in ink bids them visit Paris soon, and is signed "A bientot amitie, Bertrand." This miniature artist's book and the pull-out tray case are decorated in Dorny's characteristic mixed-media style. The binding is made from a museum advertisement, printed with a reproduction of a painting of a woman with a red umbrella and a white dog. The case is a re-purposed matchbox, covered in a collage of textures and colors including silver papers, black fabric, and a toucan sticker. A unique item in fine condition. (3 1/8 by 1 7/8; 80x47mm). Item #25905
