Robert Longo – Charcoal

The enormous, photorealistic charcoal drawings by American artist Robert Longo (*1953 in Brooklyn, New York) show the beauty and horror of the present day and age. This large-format, elaborately designed book, printed on natural paper using a tritone process, bound in half cloth and distributed in four different cover designs, has been created in close collaboration with the artist and affords a comprehensive overview of his charcoal drawings from the past decade. The book was awarded by »The Most Beautiful German Books Prize«. It also receives a certificate of honor by »The Best Book Design from all over the World«. (Published by Hatje Cantz 2012)
