Rapunzel by book artist Dennis Yuen

Cotton cords, Asahi bookcloth, Davey bookboard, Canson paper, linen threads, 2-needle coptic binding 58”w x 35”d x 3.25”h

Rapunzel is the first piece in a series that re-tells familiar children stories though books, but only through the physicality of these books. Every material in this book is white (or off-white), so the viewer is confronted with its physical form, and forced to address it. Embodied into its binding and form, the essence of Rapunzel can be seen and touched through the physical book.”
