 BOURNAZEL, DIANE DE:,  Le Chant des Possibles. Marliac (Limousin) France 2018.
BOURNAZEL, DIANE DE:
Le Chant des Possibles. Marliac (Limousin) France 2018.
. A unique, magnificent artist's book, entirely handmade. Narrow folio. (13.8 x 33.2 cm) Lvs. (8). Seven double-page illustrations, fully illuminated by hand, using watercolour, ink and collage. Original sprinkled paper boards, blue on gold coloured paper, manuscript title labels, housed in matching slipcase. The beautiful binding is by Armelle Guégant. Diane Bournazel (born 1956) is a French painter, printmaker and book illustrator represented in both private and public collections in France and elsewhere. Her books contain mysterious narratives or poetry without words which illustrate life, death and love in a puzzling way. Her detailed illustrations are filled with people, animals and other beings hovering in enigmatic environments. The stories are not straightforward and are always open to an interpretation and reinterpretation which may vary from time to time. The centre of the book has window cut-outs which make it possible to look both forward and backward. This together with small pieces of collage and striking decorated zigzag edges invites us to read the book in so many different ways. The colophon reads: "Ce livre est unique - je l'ai imaginé et réalisé durant l'été 2018, a Marliac, oú, les nuits, nous contemplons les étoiles. Armelle Guégant l'a relié, en douceur". Ref: "L'Univers menchanté de Diane de Bournazel". Art & Métiers du Livre, 316, 2016, pp. 24-31.
