MEAT | Oliver Pin-Fat | VOID 2018
This book by Oliver Pin-Fat is a true handcraft marvel: six different printing techniques, eight diferent paper stocks (and a bit of plastic), each copy bound by hand for a total of 230 copies.
From the publisher's statement:
"'Meat' is primarily about Body-Form, deformation, the flesh, the carnal. How all matter decays, transforms itself from one form to another and ultimately disintegrates into ash. Stacks of bone shards and ash, the human remains after cremation, appear like hotel pillows ready for laundry on a factory line in the morning. Biographies exist, momentarily, within slabs of frying flesh like gristle, fat, nerve or bone whilst the landscape looms outside, this endless city, ever present, howling like a beast to chew you up and spit you out disfigured once more, or swallow you up completely once you emerge from this illusory sanctuary"
