Helge Reumann & Xavier Robel, Elvis Road, Buenaventura Press, Oakland, 2007

This is an absolutely stunning 24 foot drawing by these two Swiss artists that depicts a long road that cuts through a bizarre and surreal metropolitan landscape, and in the final pages we witness the triumphal return of Jesus! The title of this accordion references Elvis Studio, the name they both individually and collectively work under. 8.75" (h) x 24' (w) The following link provides a close-up of the whole publication: Elvis_Road and was taken from the site of the Adam Baumgold gallery, New York, where the artists had an exhibition that included this publication in 2007: Adam Baumgold Gallery
