Product description: Measuring 14cm x 4cm, “Rainbow Swatches” is an 8 page book created using a heavy duty tracing paper and bound with white tape. A bellyband is provided in the form of a monochrome printed definition of “rainbow”: “1. a bow-shaped display in the sky of the colors of the spectrum, caused by the refraction and reflection of the sun’s rays”.
Each page of the book contains a letter-pressed word (a color), printed in the relevant color.
The book in contained within a small brown envelope, stamped with “Rainbow”, as well as the edition number and a bar-code on the letters flap. The envelope is too large for the book, which alongside the tracing paper, adds an element of delicacy.
This artist book is a very honest depiction of the colored spectrum, achieved through the use of modest materials.
Publication details: Letter-press printed upon heavy duty tracing paper, hand bound with white tape.
Edition No. 2 of 5.
