Medieval Castle
By Carla Busquets
Barcelona, Spain: Carla Busquets Salinas, 2019. One-of-a-Kind.

29 cm x 22 cm x 22 cm open. Carousel book structure with ribbon tie. Materials: Dalbe 200 gsm paper, markers, Indian ink, black crayon, bookboard, bookcloth, ribbon, mica. Hand-drawn and handcut by the artist. Laid in a 32.7 x 14.7 x 5 cm custom clamshell box. Signed and dated by the artist.

Carla Busquets: "Every section of the book depicts a chamber of a medieval castle: the entrance, the armoury, the dining room, the bedroom, and the library. The book opens 360 degrees. The structure is vaguely based on the castle of Fougères, in France, although the furniture and details are completely invented and adapted from different sources of inspiration. All candle flames have a mica covering to give the impression of candlelight. "
