About this Item

Brand New copy. ; Sepia Photographs; Oblong 32mo 4" - 5" tall; Handcrafted book, printed and bound in Italy; the covers are created out of hand-made Nepalese paper, coated with beeswax and wrapped in matching thin-waxed cording. According to the website for the exhibit: "The title Ashes and Snow refers to the literary component of the exhibition—a fictional account of a man who, over the course of a yearlong journey, composes 365 letters to his wife. The source of the title is revealed in the 365th letter. Colbert's photographs and one-hour film loosely reference the traveller's encounters and experiences described in the letters." Beautiful, small work of art reflecting, man's interaction with animals; this volume features elephants. Bookseller Inventory # 8864
