Mark Dion Fragments of travel, exploration and adventure, 2007
10 1/4 x 12 5/8 in. (26 x 32.1 cm)
Paris: Christophe Daviet-Thery and XN editions
In his first book project Dion assumes the guise of an 18th or 19th century scientist who explores an unknown land (he kindly includes a buffalo leather pop-up map of this terra incognita) and exhaustively documents the native flora and fauna. The book is exquisitely constructed to convincingly carry out this fiction: pieces of paper are die cut and assembled and bound into the book to suggest an impromptu but thorough record of the explorer’s discoveries and observations. Contains twenty-seven bound-in lithographs, offset printed; six bound-in digital prints; five loose lithographs, offset printed; and two loose digital prints. Edition of 36 with 9 A.P.; deluxe editions 1-6 each include a unique drawing in colored pencil. Quarter bound in buffalo leather with Zerkall Nideggen paper and Zerkall German Ingres. Slipcase.
Edition of 6 deluxe copies with original drawing.
