“Forbidden Knowledge of the Apocalypse” is a set of 4 books chained to the shelf inside of a handmade clamshell drop box. They measure approximately 3 ¼” x 4 ¾” x ¾” each.
It is inspired by my research in chained libraries and the idea of sacred knowledge.
The book are made from torn down rag paper sewn on raised cords. Each book is filled with unique, obscure watercolor paintings themed around the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. While iconography may be repeated throughout the book, such as arrows or swords, no two pages are designed the same.
The covers are boards covered with faux leather adorned with metal studs and handmade and painted clay inlays.
