CORNELL, Joseph. A Joseph Cornell Pop-Up Book for All Ages. With text by Sandra Leonard Starr. 103 pp. Includes a 3D Viewer, 6 pop ups and a folding panorama. Oblong folio, bound in publisher's blue cloth and paper label preserved in a new blue cloth folding box. Tokyo: Tokyo Publishing House, 2017.
An extraordinary homage to Joseph Cornell in the form of an artist's book. The book is a result of a shared passion for Cornell between the Japanese art dealer Shigeru Yokota and the American art historian Sandra Starr. Although originally conceived as a book for children in homage to Cornell's love for children, its elaborate nature and expense has turned it into an artist's book for adults. As new.
Published in an edition of 30 copies, the book has taken several years to produce.
