Peter Malutzki (Flörsheim, Germany)

Lucy in the Sky
2013
Letterpress
Edition of 60
94 pages
19 x 23 cm open
19 x 11.5 x 1 cm closed

Images from the internet of girls taking photographs
of themselves with their cell phones, mostly in front of a mirror.
The images were made up in Photoshop, using the color separation
process (adding some 19th century ornamental forms),
and afterwards printed with polymer plates in letterpress
(4 plates for each picture). Most of the images are
printed several times using interchanged colors.
The added text quotations come from the
Beatles song “Lucy in the sky with diamonds”.
The form and smallness of the book are a reference
to the omnipresent mobil devices.
Silver embossed black cardboard cover with cloth spine.
