DZOGCHEN – special edition with one c-print (color GOLD)
30 collector’s copies coming with a limited edition traditional A4 C-print (ed.30) made by André Jasinski (JAZZ pro colorlab in Brussels), all slipped into a very special and unique silk Tibetan book-pouch sewed by Sit Ram and his staff in Kathmandu in October 2014.
This book is PART 3 (part 1 and 2 can be found in the Golden deal section) of The Himalayan Project, a collection of artist’s books designed with Philippe Koeune as different installations, embracing the city of Kathmandu where I lived with my small family and the nature of the Himalayas with a strong and dreamy empathy.
DZOGCHEN by Vincent Delbrouck is a colorful, dense and challenging photo book, mixing collages and layers of images with no hierarchy between pictures, no pre-conceived idea of new graphic design made on the computer. No no no ! Each spread of the book was conceived as a different painting, a short story, a fragment of a holy object close from literature I have in mind and the essence of nature. It is round and exciting, full of surprises and echoes. You can hear the song of a bird in it. It is my offering to the wind and the mountains (V.D.)
