With Text by Gertrude Stein
This is the first-ever book to reproduce the entirety of ADSILA, the floral sketchbook of artists EVA & ADELE. Accompanied by a text by Gertrude Stein, the unique drawings of flowers by the pair are reproduced in the closest possible adherence to the original artists’ book in which they first appeared. The drawings, which are executed with a small number of unfalteringly precise graphite lines, continually surprise viewers with the radical aesthetics of their deceptively simple abstraction. Already the subject of numerous solo exhibitions in cities ranging from New York to Helsinki, the work of this always smiling artist duo is as groundbreaking as it is unforgettable—and this volume makes it widely available in book form, beautifully, for the first time.
