Love Song.

St. Augustine, FL: Mike Taylor, 2016. Limited Edition. Hardcover. "A history of the love song, how the contemporary western concept is a decimated shadow of the possibility." [artist book]
"Love Song is a complexly layered silkscreened artist book with a handsewn cover. The text and rich imagery explore and critique the heterosexual, monogamous and eroticized underpinnings of the concept of love, starkly juxtaposing romantic sentiments with commodification. Mike Taylor layers pop culture love song crooners such as Justin Bieber and the Supremes with historical figures depicting love, such as Degas, 16th century religious paintings and ancient Mesopotamia, exploring the constructed concept of love." [Booklyn]. Fine. Tight, bright, and unmarred. Pink printed cloth boards, purple and red ink lettering, silkscreened. fo. np. Illus. (color plates). Limited edition of 14 copies. Laid in sheet with Citations. Item #10519
