Prue Gibson’s book ruminates on the unknown and the fearful, in the style of a 19th century essay. It is an intimate opinion piece, commenting on mortality in contemporary art and delving into the frailties of human nature.
With funding from the Australia Council to write the book, Prue came to Boccalatte wanting to produce something small and unique and we had to agree. We felt it had to be precious and small, like a prayer book or missal. The ribbon, the emboss and the black edges completed the picture.
'FINALLY!!! A book on Australian Contemporary art you actually want to pick up and read.' Kinokuniya
Like a certain friend is known to proclaim – WOW! That was my first impression seeing “The Rapture of Death” a beautifully crafted little book… If you are looking for something for that special friend… look no further, even Nosferatu would be impressed. Two dismembered thumbs up! Design Federation
