Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Marielle Bancou's hand-painted books are works of art that are also physically irresistible — when you see them, you need to touch them." "House & Garden" What began as an exquisite, handmade work of art is now a lavish gift for lovers everywhere. First created a decade ago in an extremely limited, silk-screened edition by renowned bookmaker Marielle Bancou, "The Color of Love" is one of the most accessible and wide-ranging collections of writings on love ever assembled. On glorious, hand-lettered pages — each a work of art in itself — it brings together beloved haiku, sonnets, and odes, as well as many unexpected gems by a stellar lineup of luminaries: from Wang Wei to Solomon, Sophocles to John Donne, Rumi to Shakespeare, James Joyce to Cole Porter.

Book News Annotation:

Published in an oversize, slightly vertical format (9x13"), this volume presents full-page color plates of excellent quality of the silkscreened images of textile and book artist Bancou's favorite love poems, which she wrote in gold on backgrounds in all shades of red and violet. In a sturdy red slip-case. Not indexed.
