What to give to people who “have everything”? Such a question can often be found today in various groups in social networks.
People are looking for expensive gifts. But it's not so much the price, but the uniqueness and value.
Imagine a book. Good book. For example, “The Master and Margarita” Bulkagov.
Now imagine that it was served to you in a completely … no, not like that – in a perfect form. The very option when the form complements the content in the most elegant way. Binding, selected font, selected paper. Everything is handmade.
– I approach the creation of a book as a performance, – says Anatoly Zelberg. – The selection of the visual range and fonts is subject to the task of immersing the reader-viewer into the atmosphere of the work as much as possible. The binding of the book serves as a curtain behind which events unfold. For example, in Bulgakov's book “The Master and Margarita” I separated two lines of events: the events that took place in Moscow are highlighted in a separate volume, printed, as it were, on burnt paper in a handwritten font (“… manuscripts do not burn”) with a large number of old photographs of the places described in the novel, and the events in Yerushalayim filed in the form of scrolls (“…one person followed me and wrote down something”), where the font is stylized as ancient Greek, in which the apostles wrote. All this is placed in a common box.
– For me, it is more important that the design of the book reflects the era in which the author lived, the circumstances and the unique atmosphere of the work than the utilitarian purpose of the book.
Since all books are produced in an edition of no more than 50 copies, and each has its own number, they are certainly of particular interest to collectors.
