Moscow: Emil Goozairow, 2016. Number 1 of 12 copies signed by the book artist. Emil Goozairow is a Russian artist who paints and draws, produces movies, and creates exceptional handmade books that are printed on rare types of paper and published in limited editions. His techniques create unique designs that often are made with natural materials alone or in combination with relief decorations made from metal or poymeric clay. He creates books that he describes as "pop up," “kinetic carousel," “liporello” or “3D origami.” He also writes fairy tales, stories and mystical scenes. His Hamlet's Soliloquy is a wonderful example of Emil's work. It is a dos-a dos book with one side with the text in English and the other in Russian.

The covers are brown felt with a polymer clay artistic design on front cover of Russian translation side and attached grey twine straps with a metal clasp to close the book. A wonderful and imaginative interpretation of this famous soliloquy. In fine condition. Measures 2.25 x 3 inches. Fine.
