Someone Editions launches Year of the Quiet Sun

Someone Editions announces the launch of a new art folio, Year of the Quiet Sun. This set of prints takes the collages of Ludwig Zeller and re-creates them as letterpress objets d’arts. We are funding the project through Indiegogo and we invite you to join us in propelling the art of collage into the realm of fine print.

The folio is inspired by Zeller’s collages, which use 19th Century engravings, carefully cut out and combined into new and fantastical arrangements. We will underprint the subtle colours of the paper in the original collages and overprint the strong black outlines on top. The images will be presented alongside excerpts of Zeller’s poetry in both their original Spanish text and in the English translation as provided by A.F. Moritz.

The set of three prints will be presented in a luxurious hand-made folio of acid-free paper, along with a title page and a colophon. The prints can be purchased individually or as the full set of three. Since this is a limited edition production, there will only be 26 copies of the complete folio, 10 of which include Zeller’s original collages.

You can pre-order prints and full folios at our Indiegogo page. If you wish to receive a reward for your contribution, please align your pledge with one of the levels listed.

May 17, 2014 (Toronto): Someone Editions hosts a pop-up exhibition of Zeller’s work inaugurating the project.

Zeller’s world is unmistakable and wonderfully terrifying. He creates an imagination in a state of savagery, one that wanders in the desert, brutal and anxious like primitive man.
– José Miguel Oviedo

The fine presentation of fine print has the immediate effect of thrilling its beholders to greater creative expectations & expression… Sumptuous art folios of this kind survive as high points in our cultural history.
– Nick Drumbolis, antiquarian book dealer and art lover
