This artist book by Dutch artist Anouk Kruithof (designed by Hans Seeger and published by the always-interesting Little Brown Mushroom Books) is just truly inspiring to me - in its shape, construction and just the thought-process and imagination behind it.
" 'Do you see something there? Why are you standing still all of a sudden?' With those words begin Anouk Kruithof’s trip into the Little Brown rabbit hole.
Using hand-made montages of photographs she took in Belize, Mexico, Egypt, Morocco and Berlin, Kruithof spins a hallucinatory yarn of anxiety and desire."
