[n.p., New York]: Conveyor, (2012, 2013, 2014). First Edition. Hardcover. Three volumes. 8vos. Buckram in dust jacket, limp cloth, and cloth in dust jacket respectively. OLD MAN AND SEA SIGNED by the artist at title page. All fine. Fine / fine. Item #16205
Using her own copies of the classic novels THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA, MOBY DICK, and THE STRANGER as a starting points, Joy Drury Cox uses strategic subtraction, removing elements from the page to reduce the literary icons to minimal visual representations. These three texts utilize punctuation as the primary graphic element, doing away with text entirely. Three striking artist's books that create a dialogue between literature, art, and the physical book.
