about this work

This edition is part of Salon Verlag’s Ex Libris Series, for which they invite an artist to reprint their ‘favourite’ book. Each re-printed book comes with a special artist designed cover or dust jacket. These publications cover various disciplines – including medicine, physics, literature, philosophy, travel, art history and urban planning – and provide insight into the creative backgrounds of the invited artist.  Of every book, Salon Verlag makes a limited collector’s edition that comes with limited edition print or unqiue artwork.
