People by Blexbolex
Brand Gecko Press
A stunningly illustrated book with retro-looking silkscreened images, where each character is matched with another on the opposite page. These relationships are often funny and surprising. Sometimes the connection is obvious. Other times it takes a bit of thinking. A fisherman and a fishmonger. A slave and a goddess. A princess and a werewolf. Real, mythical and imaginary people come together in this stunning picture book.
>Like Blexbolex's earlier book "Seasons," this is a conceptual book, where the connections between the images are both clear and subtle.
