Moscow: Emil Goozairow, 2016. Emile Goozairow is a Russian artist who paints and draws, produces movies, and creates exceptional miniature 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 polymeric 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.
"A carousel is spinning, and golden sand like snow slowly falls. I saw a strange mysterious alphabet and all the characters fly into the sky ...." When each page is turned the revealed pages pop open with Emil's beautiful illustrations and text describing a fantastical dream. The covers are brown velvet with a relief polymer clay artistic design on the front cover. A wonderful and imaginative book. In fine condition. Measures about 2.25 x 3 inches. ARTB/021921. Fine.
