Product description


“During the design period, the book was reconceptualized in consultation with Gord Peteran. It is no longer a simple perfect bound softcover, but a uniquely bound hardcover book. 4 different high-quality papers are used in the book, for text, photos, and duotone pages separating sections. Finally, there are 15 fold-out sections up to 5 pages wide to illustrate the text and document the works of art in the exhibition. The value of the book increased far more than the price, as it is now not only a documentation of Peteran's work, but an artifact in its own right.”--Martin Sovik, Milwaukee Art Museum
