Exquisite Book

The Exquisite Book – Published by Chronicle Books.

Back in Issue 20 {I Think I Can Fly Issue} of Blanket Magazine we spoke to Julia Rothman about how she {and her business partners Matt and Jenny from Also} were putting the finishing touches on their upcoming book. Now, finally we can all see the results of their first curated art book The Exquisite Book!

The book was based on the Surrealist game the Exquisite Corpse and involved curating 100 artists to collaborate together. The book itself is split into separate chapters with 10 artists completing a section beginning with certain phrases – for instance “In the Clouds” or “In the Mountains”. Personally I think splitting the book into themes was a very clever concept as it shows the diversity of each of the artists and keeps a nice flow to the book {not that by any means you would get bored looking at the amazing artwork!}.

The list of artists involved is seriously impressive {and just to name a few…} Betsy Walton, Jen Corace, Carson Ellis, Lauren Nassef, Nigel Peake, Camilla Engman, Julia Pott, Luke Ramsey, Kate Bingham-Burt, Lisa Congdon, Mike Perry, and of course Julia Rothman.

If you would like to read more about The Exquisite Book and the artists involved you can follow the current blog tour – and also check out some mighty fine blogs along the way!

It began yesterday with the lovely Erin from Design for Mankind and today stops in at My Love For You Is A Stampede Of Horses. If you are super quick you might even score yourself your very own copy of the book – head on over and make a comment to win!
