Press 65 is thrilled to announce that Paola's limited edition artist's book From Inside has been selected to appear in Lark Books' 500 Handmade Books, Volume 2! The book's author is Julie Chen of Flying Fish Press.
The book's description reads as follows:
"Everyone who loved the original 500 Handmade Books will eagerly dip into this visually dynamic follow-up. Offering 500 stunning new creations by an international roster of artists, it showcases the unlimited creative possibilities of books as objects and as sculptural pieces. Along with traditional, richly embellished volumes, boundary-pushing works unfurl, scroll, and flip; feature improbable materials like metal, fabric, wood, and glass; and include lush, handcrafted papers."
500 Handmade Books, Volume 2 will be available September 2013.
“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.” Karl Lagerfeld
I completely agree. Which is why I loved the idea of the new fragrance "Paper Passion." The perfume is designed by Geza Schoen and Gerhard Steidl for book lovers, and smells like a freshly printed book. The packaging, designed by Karl Lagerfeld and Steidl, is also quite fantastic.
