Chasing Paper.

Cohen, Claudia (illus.)

(Vancouver, BC): Heavenly Monkey Editions, 2007. Square octavo. One of thirty copies. An exquisitely constructed book containing a vast array of paper specimens, from fine handmade and Chinese ceremonial papers to the cardboard packaging for toothpicks and other products. Some of the specimens are tipped-in on heavy white or black paper, others are bound in. The book was hand assembled and bound by Claudia Cohen and Julia Weese-Young. An artist's statement by Cohen precedes the specimens. The binding of thick taupe-colored wrappers is decorated on the front panel with an intricate design consisting of strips of colored paper woven into the panel itself; this design is bordered on either side by rows of gilt circles showing underneath small holes punched out of the panel. The top hinge is decorated with small squares of colored paper sewn into the wrapper. Red paper label to the binding, lettered in gilt. Mint in a green cloth folding box with red and gold paper labels on the spine overlapping to form a square-and-diamond pattern, the upper red label lettered in gilt. Item #30571

Price: $4,500.00
