Everyone online is talking about The Exquisite Book because it is - exquisite.
The brainchild of Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski and Matt LaMothe, it's based on the Surrealist game called the Exquisite Corpse. In book form it's played by a collaboration of 100 artists, designers, illustrators and comic artists. Each artist created one page for the book, seeing only the page that immediately preceded theirs, and using images and sometimes words to progress the story.
Among the artists who participated are Camilla Engman, Takashi Iwasaki, Emiliano Ponzi and Joe McClaren. The foreword is by Dave Eggers.
Another fabulous addition to the creative booklover's bookshelf or a conversation piece for your coffee table. You can pick one up here.
