Two volumes for a mixed media project subtitled A 33-Step Method Based on Aerodynamic Research. One volume consists of Notes written between 1997 and 2000--it is rectangular, bound in boards, and contains 33 pages of Notes and 13 pages of an Afterword, illustrated with color plates of installations and things. Oh, and there's a pop-up inside the front cover. The other volume is roughly triangular, and contains two smaller paperbound books of roughly the same shape. One is also subtitled The 33-Step Method., consisting mostly of drawings with a few in color, and the other, smaller still, is subtitled Step 27, which is actually a flip book. Both are enclosed in clear plastic sort-of envelopes. This whole thing, designed by Buvoli, makes much more sense when you see it, of course. The one thing NOT included is an 18-minute film-transferred-to-video, which one could have used. Altogether, a neat attempt by the artist to document his thinking about how man could fly without mechanical assistance. Volume one has a little wear to the corners; volume two has bumped corners and light wear to the leading edge.

Price = 50.00 USD
