Sarabande is proud to announce BOUND – an individually hand-bound collection
of sculptural works which explores intricately the beauty of paper and its endless, creative diversity. An artwork in itself, no two BOUND collections will be the same. 36 of the 100+ artists that have been supported and mentored through the Foundation have contributed new artworks for the project.
The limited-edition of 100 copies will feature works where paper from G.F. Smith has been sculpted, cut, embossed, perforated, hand painted, embroidered and dyed. There will also be fold outs and cut outs, collages and transparent ‘windows’. Launched at Dover Street Market on 30 November, BOUND will sell for £2,500 via Sarabande’s House of Bandits website and features a foreword by Charlie Porter.
20 of the artists – from fashion designers, performance artists and jewellers to painters and filmmakers - have also created 10 original artworks each which will be randomly scattered throughout the limited run of 100 books, with each edition of BOUND including two original artworks.
The book is bound tight in hand-embroidered linen in the traditional Japanese Furoshiki style. The wrap features Sarabande’s signature deadhead moth flying free of the flame and drawn to the light, in a design inspired by Escher.
Sarabande is proud to announce BOUND – an individually hand-bound collection of sculptural works which explores intricately the beauty of paper and its endless, creative diversity. An artwork in itself, no two BOUND collections will be the same, each wrapped in hand-embroidered linen.
We challenged our artists to think outside their usual practice whether that be fashion or jewellery design, photography, filmmaking or painting, and present themselves in an unexpected way.
Each edition includes two original signed and dated artworks - some bound into the book, others loose – in addition to more than 30 specially-commissioned artworks on over 85 different paper stocks.
Please note that express shipments to USA will cost £300 including duties and taxes. Please get in touch for shipping costs to Europe and Asia.
