Here is the third volume within the series Schaamstreken by Otto Egberts. For me the most spectacular art book ever! It has a Bacon like quality…poetic, raw, explicit. Beautifully executed small paintings on German and Swedish old maps. Because of the thick paper used for these maps these paintings feel like real paintings , bound in goat leather. The scenes are personal and explicit, but above all …theye never loose their artistic quality, making this for me the ultimate artist book. enjoy the pages of this volume no. 3 and look closely at the photo which i took from the very first page. The scene explicit, but it has a dream like quality. Next week the last volume within this series which is again totally different.
