King of Gods
(Handcraft luxury edition, limited to 9 copies):
This book is one of my personal dreams, a tribute to the sublime prints of the most prestigious editions. It is an Arts and Crafts approach, in the spirit of William Morris: the desire to bring together art and crafts in the service of an object in order to grant him a true spirit.
We worked with Belfëa, a longtime leather-crafting friend, to create an exceptional edition, a dream book that rediscovers the form of the most precious editions. It will be entirely handmade, down to the smallest detail.
I will make an original artwork on the title page of the 9 copies, using my favorite technique: graphite, gold leaf, white ink and hydrangea petals. This original art will be apart from the book, you can choose either to keep it within the book or to frame it as you wish.
The King of Gods will embrace a celestial aesthetic to depict the dreamlike approach behind its conception. Its stars will guide our hands during its making.
