David Eichenberger, Eric Knisley, Mark McMurray, Adam Meuse, Marx Myth, Busytown: An Exquisite Corpse, 2018 [1st printing, ed. 80]

Another smart exquisite corpse from the crew down in Raleigh, North Carolina. I have reviewed two of their accordions previously (see 'Factory' & 'Tunnel', 2017) with an accompanying statement about the books, and their working methods by Eric Knisley. The present publication sees a larger group of 5 artists collaborating on this work. The final drawing is impressive with subtle and staggered transitions that really help to create the sense that this is one long continuous work. Bravo guys!

30 pages, 9"(h) x 6"(w), when open 15ft long, 1st printing, ed. 80. You can order the book here:
