Taiwanese-American visual artist James Jean has returned with another print edition of his high-gloss surrealist work Bibliophile.
"Reading by candlelight, the Bibliophile is lost in the stacks, where each leaf reveals a pulpy expanse of possibility. Flames lick the frayed edges of his tunic and bookends come to life. With each chapter conquered, the stacks grow into walls, and the walls grow into a labyrinth from which there is no escape. In our most complex print yet, the edges of each book's pages are gilded with precision in multiple types of foil, requiring 21 passes through the press to complete the entire composition." Carefully sculpted details can be found throughout.
Please allow for additional shipping time due to the careful packaging these prints require.
