Books - Habemus Papam
This book was made just before Pope Benedict XVI resigned from the Papacy. The book is bound using a traditional coptic binding, but with 2 bindings - one on the left and one on the right - instead of one. On each page are 2 etchings, and 2 quotes from the Early Desert Fathers, progressing forward in time from Early Christianity.
Each of the etchings are created in sets of two, with the exception of the final page. Each evolves in structure from unstructured to a completed image of Bramante's original floor plan of St. Peter's Basilica.
All of the etchings and writings are hand-created using the etching and aquatint technique. The book is hand-bound.
