Already a sensation in the UK and winner of the prestigious 2008 Design & Art Direction award for outstanding achievement in illustration and book design, Sara Fanelli's Sometimes I Think, Sometimes I Am is an extraordinary new creation, a book unlike any other.
Known for her often-imitated, never duplicated experimental techniques, renowned illustrator Fanelli finds inspiration not only in the visual arts but also in literature and theater. From Dante and Goethe to Calvino and Beckett, Fanelli draws on her favorite quotations and aphorisms to create a work of utter originality, previously unpublished sketches, collages, paintings, and drawings, at the heart of which lies a beautiful miniature book-within-a-book.
Famed art director Steven Heller provides an illuminating introduction while critic Marina Warner introduces each of the book's five chapters, "Devils and Angels," "Love," "Color," "Myth," and "The Absurd." Eclectic, dynamic, and full of creative energy, Sometimes I Think, Sometimes I Am speaks to the power of inspiration and the capacity for books to embody it.
