Moscow: Emil Goozairow, 2020. Fine. Number 4 of 5 copies signed by the book artist. Emil Goozairow is a Russian artist who paints and draws, produces movies, and creates exceptional miniature handmade books that are printed on rare types of paper and published in limited editions. His techniques create unique designs that often are made with natural materials alone or in combination with relief decorations made from metal or polymeric clay. He creates books that he describes as "pop up," "kinetic carousel," "liporello" or "3D origami." He also writes fairy tales, stories and mystical scenes. Hamlet's Soliloquy is a wonderful example of Emil's work. When each page is turned the the revealed pages pop open with Emil's beautiful illustrations and the soliloquy's text that are done in shades of brown. The covers are a reddish brown fabric with a relief polymer clay artistic design on the front cover. There are attached brown braided cord straps with a metal clasp to close the book. A wonderful and imaginative interpretation of this famous soliloquy. In fine condition. Measures about 2.25 x 3 inches.
