James Jean recently unveiled a new limited edition print featuring his surrealist motifs. Entitled Bibliophile, the composition spotlights a bookworm with a mystical creature on its lap inside a room that appears to be a library.
“Reading by candlelight, the Bibliophile is lost in the stacks, where each leaf reveals a pulpy expanse of possibility. Flames lick the frayed edges of his tunic and bookends come to life. With each chapter conquered, the stacks grow into walls, and the walls grow into a labyrinth from which there is no escape,” described the artist in a statement.
Bibliophile will be available on James Jean’s website for 24 hours starting at 8:00 AM PDT on Tuesday, July 20 and ending at 7:59 AM PDT on Wednesday, July 21. The edition is limited by the number of prints sold during those 24 hours and never reprinted.
