i’m jealous of jacque schiller

A boy in a book. Love, love, love.

This lovely handset & bound letterpress book by Jacque Schiller is now officially on my Christmas list… ok, I’m starting a bit early, but can you blame me?! Under Cover is a 32 page story of a ‘tiny boy who lives inside the book and is constantly trying to escape the page boundaries’. Poor little fella… holes, folds and all sorts of paper mechanics stop him from finding his way out! Such a clever idea, and oh so beautifully executed. There are only one hundred of them, so I’m going to have to be extra good if I want Santa to bring me a copy!

{You can find ‘Under Cover’ at the following places… Supermarket, Desert Island, Brooklyn, Proteus Gowanus Gallery, Brooklyn, Wonder Fair, Lawrence KS, The Secret Headquarters, LA, or you can contact Jacque directly.}
