Rise & Fall
A Concertina of Life by Micah Lidberg
First Edition, 2010
With obi, paper wrap.
Cond: VG. Spot of loss where obi adhered to book.
This beautiful concertina book folds out to a stunning 136 cm panorama detailing the demise of some of our planet’s most dominant and long standing occupants only to be replaced by another group of breastfeeding placental creatures that would come to reign over the globe millions of years later. Micah Lidberg’s seamless use of line and adeptness with a limited color palette recalls the intricate patterns of traditional Japanese kimono design and the murals of 1930s New York Deco in a book that is really more of a work of art, to be coveted and cherished. The nature of the concertina book also means that it is easily displayed on a mantelpiece or shelving unit, and printed on heavy card stock, it will stand the test of time.
I’ll start by saying you will be VERY hard pressed to find a copy of this rare book in the exceptional condition as this one. Most that crop up are lacking the amazing clear sleeve or it is horribly damaged…this one is perfect. Also, I’ve noted that other copies have loose pages or are even missing pages at the beginning. This copy does not even appear to have been cracked open. It is very nice, indeed.
