New York: Béatrice Coron, 2021. Paperback. Unique. A carousel structure book that exuberantly displays book artist Béatrice Coron's paper cutting artistry and skill. The several layers are cut from one extended sheet of cream colored paper. When closed the cut pages reveal a dense forest. As the pages are turned one can spy a man in a balloon, another on a bridge, an elephant (!),two deer, a bird, and more amid the foliage. Christina Favretto, Head of Special Collections at the University of Miami describes Coron's work: "There is a palpable joy in the work of Béatrice Coron, the kind of joy we felt as children in unwrapping a particularly enticing holiday gift. But...for Béatrice the gift is a sheet of Tyvek...or paper, and the stories to be unearthed and unleashed within and through the medium." Coron describes her book work: "For the last 20 years, I have been exploring visual storytelling in artist books, paper cutting and public art. Collecting memories from individuals and communities, I stage narrative allegories in silhouette to create a dialogue with the viewer in playful fantasies. These visual chronicles record archetypal stories that transcend time and space. I have been fascinated by the relation of people to their space and the sense of belonging. Using papercutting where everything is cut from a single piece of Tyvek, the profusion of individual stories makes a coherent whole world." [From her website]. Hand-cut on Arches paper. With black cloth covers and title label to front. In fine condition. Size: 8 x 5.5 x .75 inches. ARTB/081921. Fine.
