Drop Dead Gorgeous: Fine Bindings of La Prose du Transsibérien Re-creation

Drop Dead Gorgeous: Fine Bindings of La Prose du Transsibérien Re-creation

San Francisco Center for the Book, 375 Rhode Island Street, San Francisco, CA.

The remarkable book by poet Blaise Cendrars and artist Sonia Delaunay, La Prose du Transsibérien et de la petite Jehanne de France, was produced by letterpress and pochoir in 1913. It was a landmark achievement for its time with its unprecedented format, avant-garde typography and abstract imagery, and remains vibrant and modern today.

Kitty Maryatt of Two Hands Press has been researching the production of La Prose du Transsibérien since 2012. In 2018, she debuted a new edition of 150 copies, which faithfully incorporates techniques and methods used in the original. At the same time, Maryatt and her underwriters commissioned fine bindings by notable design binders from around the world. These bindings, along with Maryatt’s La Prose du Transsibérien Re-Creation, have resulted in a traveling exhibition titled Drop Dead Gorgeous: Fine Bindings of La Prose du Transsibérien Re-creation.

Debuting in San Francisco, the exhibition will feature the work of twenty-two design binders, including Don Glaister, Monique Lallier, Midori Kunikata-Cockram and Tracey Rowledge. Tools, materials, and supplemental material used in the creation of Maryatt’s edition of La Prose will also be on display. Upon closing in San Francisco in October, the exhibition travels to additional venues in the United States, Canada and England.

Working in partnership, Tracey Rowledge and David Clarke will be creating a new body of work, in response to their experience of residency within the cultural quarter of Tunbridge Wells.

Clarke and Rowledge found common points of interest and got to know the collections through discovery, research, public and private discussion and reflection. It was the things that ‘tripped us up’ and piqued our curiosity, which resulted in a comprehensive new body of work.
