The North African Collages
The incredible work of Nick Bantock has always been inspirational to me. Apart from the gorgeous Griffin and Sabine series, my most favorite book of his would have to be "The Venetian's Wife" - described as "a strangely sensual tale of a renaissance explorer, a computer, and a metamorphosis" These beautiful collages are part of his North African series, more of which can be viewed here.
Aren't they just stunning? Turn of the century North Africa would have been an incredible place to see that's for sure. Ah well, the imagination will have to do!
