A Book of Books by Abelardo Morell

Description

A visual tribute to the printed word, this delicious ode to The Book won awards and critical praise when first published in an oversized format in 2002. Abelardo Morell's elegant photographs of books are presented in duotone reproductions, highlighting the grace and sensuality of the printed page. Morell has selected unusual books, like a leather-bound volume that is smaller than a paper clip, an impossibly large dictionary and illustrated books whose characters appear to leap off the page. He has photographed the endless ocean of books in a library and the strikingly beautiful way in which weathered and water-damaged books take on sculptural form.

Author Biography

Abelardo Morell was born in Cuba in 1948. His work has been exhibited and collected by the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum and the Metropolitan Museums of Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago and over 40 others.
