The Exquisite Book

The Exquisite Book

If you’re in San Francisco tomorrow night, I recommend stopping by The Exquisite Book Signing and & Live Drawing event. Artists in attendance will include Julia Rothman, Lisa Congdon, Caitlin Keegan, Susie Ghahremani, Kelly Lynn Jones, Tom Neely, Eunice Moyle and Lorena Siminovich.

The Exquisite Book

More details on the book: (From the publisher)

n The Exquisite Book, one hundred indie artists play an ingenious version of the Exquisite Corpse drawing game. Each adorns a page with artwork—having seen only the page of the artist immediately prior and using a single horizon line to connect the two. Some continue the “story” quite literally while others build on the previous page in more fanciful ways. This astonishing volume’s format is as unique as its content, with each of the book’s ten chapters residing on a ten-page accordion pull-out, allowing readers to view the art continuously. With an illustrated foreword by Dave Eggers, and art from such luminaries as James Jean and Jill Bliss, this charming book is, simply, exquisite.n The Exquisite Book, one hundred indie artists play an ingenious version of the Exquisite Corpse drawing game.
