THE EXQUISITE BOOK
100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game
By Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski, and Matt Lamothe
THE EXQUISITE BOOK reinvents the classic surrealist drawing game The Exquisite Corpse for a new artistic generation. In these pages, one-hundred of today’s hottest indie artists each adorn a single page with brand new work, having only seen the page of the artist immediately prior. Each of the book’s ten chapters resides on a ten-page according fold-out that lets you enjoy the artwork in an interconnected stream, as it was originally created by the artists themselves. It includes work from contemporary illustrators, indie artists, and cutting-edge creates such as David Shrigley, Jill Bliss, Jordan Crane and more.
About the Authors: Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski, and Matt Lamothe are partners in Also Design, a design firm based out of Chicago and New York that has won several awards, including the ADC Young Guns award. Julia is author of the popular blog BookByItsCover.com, which showcases the design and layout of obscure books.
So far the artists who will be in attendance at this event will be the authors, Anders Nilsen, Lillie Carre, Paul Hornschemeier, Isaac Tobin, Lauren Nassef and Susie Ghahremani.
