Publisher: Self-Published

Year: 2013

Price: 125

Comments: 24,5 x 18 cm, Leporello, lithography – colour & books, edition – 100/ numbered and signed in a box

The book is a fascinating puzzle, a game with associations and feelings. The name comes from a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. A witch turns the girl into a nightingale, her lover overcomes the spell and makes her a woman again.

But in Ellen Korth’s book, we see paintings of “Madonna and Child”, that hang in museums in Amsterdam and Berlin. In big letters a lullaby runs through the book. A hypnotic mantra of numbers and letters. On the sealed inner sides of the Japanese bound pages more pictures, mother with child today. A small photo of a family celebration falls out... See why i speak of a mystery opus. But the book is so uniquely designed and delicately manufacturerd that it is a pleasure to deal with it anyway.
