Catell Ronca and Emiliano Ponzi were invited to contribute art to Chronicle Books’ newly released The Exquisite Book: 100 Artists Play a Collaborative Game by Julia Rothman, Jenny Volvovski and Matt Lamothe, with an illustrated foreword by Dave Eggers.
The book is based on a modified version of the Surrealist game, The Exquisite Corpse, played by one hundred contemporary fine artists, illustrators, designers and comic artists. Each artist contributes one page to the book, having only seen the page preceding their own. Each page must have a horizon line that starts on the left side of the page and ends on the right. Where the horizon line on the first artist’s page ends, is where it begins for the next artist.
The book was designed by ALSO, with each of the book’s ten chapters printed on a ten-page accordion pull-out, allowing the reader to view the art as a continuous piece.
Other contributing artists include Esther Pearl Watson, James Jean, Simon Peplow, The Heads of State, Calef Brown, Juliette Borda and Mike Perry, among others.
The book is available through Amazon.
