Artist Book

Hina : Japanese Girl’s Day Dolls
by Shereen LaPlantz

Case contains twelve color photographs mounted on gold paper. When unfolded, case stands upright; when folded, case ties shut with black satin ribbon from obi of doll cut-out on front. From the colophon: "All of the illustrations are pen and ink drawings by the author. They were scanned into a computer and composed with text in PageMaker. The font is Papyrus ICG. Each page was Gocco printed on sumi paper. The peach blossoms were printed first, then the other screens were used to print the text and illustrations"

AAEL Special Collections houses a unique collection of artists' books. For more information about artists' books, please visit the online database of the collection.

"Cities on Speed"

"Cities on Speed" is a series of four documentaries about megacities, their problems and attempts at solutions. Commissioned by the Danish Film Institute and the national broadcaster DR, each film focuses on a particular city and specific situation: Bogotá: Improving Civic Behavior, Cairo: Garbage, Mumbai: Traffic, and Shanghai: Space. Of particular interest to urban planners and designers, these dvds are well worth checking out!
