Printmaker and painter Poppy Dully produces a variety of artist’s books, including a series of altered books in which imagery from film adaptations of literature is reflected back onto the text. In this example, sixteen scenes from the 1939 William Dieterle version of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (starring Charles Laughton and Maureen O’Hara) have been printed as monotypes on text pages drawn from a Modern Library edition of the novel. The finished sequence was then reattached to the original covers. When opened completely, the accordion stretches a full twelve feet.

Price: $600.00
