I recently became the proud owner of the Exquisite Book, a beautiful book full of wonderful, colourful, playful and inspirational illustrations. A 'team effort' of the sort I would love to be part of!
'The Exquisite Book is a project based on the Surrealist game called the Exquisite Corpse. The book is a modified version of the game, played by one hundred contributing contemporary fine artists, illustrators, designers and comic artists.
There are ten groups of ten artists who participated in the process. Each artist contributed one page to the book. The first artist was given a few words to inspire their drawing. Each of the following artists only saw the page that immediately preceded their own. Each artist used images (and optionally, words) to create the continuation to the story, and the inspiration for the next artist in line.
Besides continuing the story of the last artist, there is another, more visual, connection between the pages. Each artist had a horizon line in their image that starts on the left side of the page and ends on the right. Where the horizon line of the first artist’s page ends, is where it begins for the next artist.'
