Read Me! Exhibit: Reading the Best Book in the World cover

Read Me! Exhibit: Reading the Best Book in the World

By Rilla Alexander

5"x7", archival pigment digital print, 100% cotton rag paper

This piece was created for Read Me! Reading Frenzy's 21st Anniversary Exhibit by Rilla Alexander

Rilla Alexander has been making books since she was two. She would tell the story to her mother who’d type it onto her pictures and bind them into books complete with a biography just like this. Rilla's alter-ego Sozi stars in her picture books Her Idea and The Best Book in the World published by Flying Eye Books. 

About the piece(s): These were drawings I did in 2013 while I was working on The Best Book in the World. In that story, she has her nose stuck in a book and is seemingly unaware of what is happening around her. Ultimately, I came to the conclusion that she shouldn’t be operating a vehicle herself and could only be whisked from place to place without any control over what was happening. It was sad to leave these drawings out because they were always my favourite so I am thrilled to show them here.

Reading the Best Book in the World is a series of five illustrations which form an action sequence. Buy them all buy them individually! These archival prints will last for decades if framed under glass and kept out of direct sunlight.

Arthur Hacket, October 19th, 1919 cover

Arthur Hacket, October 19th, 1919

12"x16"

A few years ago, Chloe Eudaly purchased a 100-year old autograph book from a rare book dealer called Your Hidden Skeleton. The directions were simple -- "Sign your name with full pen of ink, on folded line... Fold Paper while ink is still wet... Be careful to dot the i, and to place the period at the end of the name." --but results were otherwordly, revealing images that look like alien x-rays replete with wings, faces, antennae and other appendages. We've given these "skeletons" a new life, plucking the most compelling examples from their yellowing pages , gently enhancing the images, and creating one-of-a-kind heirloom quality prints that will last another hundred years.

Presumably inspired by the 19th century parlor game, Blotto, these novelty autograph books(there's at least one other version called The Ghosts of My Friends) pre-date the Rorschach Test by several years and involve the very unique element of an individual's own handwriting which lends a layer of meaning and infinite variation to the game

Prints are archival pigment on cotton rag paper, edition of 1
