Germanic Libris Miniaturias: Taxidermied Bookcover.

New York: CAW, 2010. Unique. Hardcover. "These libris Miniaturias cover specimens are each 1.5 high, attached with insect pins to a linen backing inside a glass-fronted wooden frame. They are made with alum-tawed goatskin over wooden boards; the top cover has brass bosses, and features a blind stamp of a Grecian style woman playing a harp; the bottom is furnished with tiny clasps made by the artist in the duckhead style. The name libris Miniaturias, which has been engraved on a brass plate mounted to the frame, is from a series of works by the artist exploring the life cycle of miniature books. This work can be hung on a wall, displayed flat on a table, or at an angle in a cradle. It is not from an edition per se, but is one of an ongoing series of works on a theme." (from the artist). Fine. Tight, bright, and unmarred. Framed miniature bindings, mounted as specimen exhibits in 6"x8" black wooden frame. Signed by the artist/binder. Item #9042

Price: $750.00
