I came across the work of New Jersey artist Micah Lidberg by slightly unusual means. Whilst visiting a printers as part of my own work recently, I saw Lidberg’s ‘Rise and Fall’ in the process of being printed for its second edition (which I think is on sale now). Created for Nobrow, ‘Rise and Fall’ is a beautiful, illustrated panorama folded into a concertina book. The illustration depicts a near extinct land on the brink of progression. However, the real beauty this edition is created from the printing process. It is printed in four slightly unexpected spot colours, creating unusual texture and an added depth. It is a really beautiful and unique edition.
