Paul Garbett: Year of the Monkey — Sydney, Australia
Year of the Monkey by Paul Garbett is a stunning artist edition hand made to the highest standards, featuring a suite of captivating illustrations presented in a limited edition linen-bound volume. Known for his rhythmic, geometric illustrations, Year of the Monkey presents a stylistic departure from Garbett’s signature simplicity as he recalls the momentous, menial, and at times, sombre events that make up a year.
Garbett’s illustrations are secreted with allusions to his personal experience alongside the pop-cultural events that impacted us all; the resulting narrative is a cryptic and surreal journey told without words. This self-contained series of evocative scenarios is presented within duplexed lay flat binding and features beautiful striped page edges. Hand bound in a linen hardcover and finished with foil blocking, this publication is offered as a limited artist edition of just 16 copies, all signed by the artist.
