This is what it's all about

The eighteen-part series «Scratchings Blue» consists of experimental photographs I created during my artist residency at Leipziger Baumwollspinnerei in Germany. These images have been exhibited on various occasions, and some of their prints have already been sold.

I want to publish this series, which I manipulated with several interventions, with a German- or English-language art book press.

This is what it should look like

The book’s tentative format is 24 × 20 cm; it will have 72 pages at a print run of at least 1000. The book will be printed in high quality on premium-quality paper. It will feature an excellent essay by Fabian Knierim (a curator based in Vienna), which you can read in three languages (German, English, French).

The book is to be published in fall/winter 2018 and can be yours before Christmas! If you want to know more, drop me a line at office@markolipus.com.
