Mélanie Corre, Cascade, Terry Bleu publisher, Amsterdam, 2021, ed. 200

With its cool simulated 'stone' covers, and inside with its elongated landscape of similar stones on both sides of a river running down the middle of the accordion, accompanied by assorted figures and unexpected detritus popping up down its length — this according charts a journey through a totally unique landscape, one that was inspired by old panorama river maps.

For more information on this artist & illustrator see:

12 double-sided pages, individually 3.5" x 9.25" and when fully opened 4ft 1".
