Atlas Mons

I have begun to sort through all the books that have accumulated this summer so I can start sharing again. I received three gorgeous handmade artist books from a printmaking studio in Cape Town, South Africa called Warren Editions. They are part of a series of wordless picture books. I’ll share the other two later this week but today I wanted to focus on this beauty by artist Jean de Wet. His intricate drawings are about: (from Warren Edition’s website) “Atlas Mons’ sees the Birdman, ‘upon a mysterious perch, witness to the demise of another refugee and, the uncompromising brutality of the Forgotten Forests.” The images are all silkscreened and the book is sewn together. It’s quite a special object aside from Jean’s awesome drawings. You can learn more about Warren Editions and pick up a copy here.
