The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game

The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game: Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski, Matt Lamothe, Dave Eggers: 9780811870900: Amazon.com: Books.

In The Exquisite Book, one hundred indie artists play an ingenious version of the Exquisite Corpse drawing game. Each adorns a page with artworkhaving seen only the page of the artist immediately prior and using a single horizon line to connect the two. Some continue the “story” quite literally while others build on the previous page in more fanciful ways. This astonishing volume’s format is as unique as its content, with each of the book’s ten chapters residing on a ten-page accordion pull-out, allowing readers to view the art continuously. With an illustrated foreword by Dave Eggers, and art from such luminaries as James Jean and Jill Bliss, this charming book is, simply, exquisite.
