Dans la Lune
By Fanette Mellier
Dans la lune depicts a lunar cycle with simplicity and elegance, proposing a sensitive progression through the lunar month with a combination of 8 colored inks. When the moon is waxing, the edges of its white surface are overlayed with a subtle palette of tones; when it is waning, its dark side is revealed through shadowy overprints. Fanette Mellier’s work oscillates between technical constraints and experimentation, science and pure poetry. These 30 November moons coincide with the month the book was first released.
Beautifully printed with 8-color Pantone printing by Éditions du livre, this is the much anticipated third printing of a popular title hard to find in the US. With a metallic foil imprint on the cover.
