Sorry, this item has sold.


Ask a question

a book art object (art object, book sculpture)

a vintage book – in this case, called "Asymmetric Typography" (a design text) – with a new, original artwork on the front cover

5.75 x 9.5 inches

the pages have been varnished shut; you cannot open this book; it is now an art object, meant to sit on a coffee table or mantle or bookshelf

it is also meant to be handled – the artwork is protected by acrylic varnish

My errors were more fertile than I ever imagined.
~ Jan Tschichold

A completely original gift for the art and design lover.

This is a found book; all marks from its history are left untouched.

Packaged in a plastic sleeve for gift giving, with an explanatory card.

Everything from my store comes with an extra art surprise.

So my stepdaughter has taken an interest in djb, and these items are what she selected for her room. I'm a collector of his art, and her appreciation for his art has made my appreciation for her grow exponentially. Perhaps even saving a stepdaughter/stepmother relationship? Perhaps not that far, but it definitely bonded us in someway. Thanks, djb. <3.
