The Frog Heart
(free shipping worldwide)
ottoGraphic Artists' book in collaboration with Wasser im Turm, Berlin
The 16th in a series of Frog prince inspired books, by different artists, published and screen printed by Wasser im Turm.
My narrative is a deconstruction of the fairy tale, by physically cutting up the original text, and reassembling it to create a new story. The eventual narrative is about the servant Henry's heart, freed by the princess, but finally imprisoned again. My first collaged text is in English, followed by a German version, which is also available.
The method is inspired by Gaham Rawle's book 'Womans' World', as well as ealier forms of altered Books such as Tom Phillips' 'A Humument'.
