Manchuria Peripheral Vision
Published by Editorial RM/Diamantina.
Edited by Fernando Llanos. Text by Guillermo Arriaga, Issa María Benítez Dueñas, Martha Hellion, César Martínez, Felipe Ehrenberg, Guillermo Gómez Peña.
Felipe Ehrenberg is recognized in Mexico as an extraordinary draftsman, but is better known internationally as a mail and media artist and for his performance and installation works. He also has a prestigious reputation as a book artist and has produced several seminal works in this field. This artist's book is extraordinary not only for its contents and its outstanding design--it is perhaps one of the best looking artist's books on our list this season--but also for the way it took shape. "I don't believe in being baroque," the artist wrote to the designer, "but I chose Manchuria because it shares the 'M' with Mexico; you could have green, white and green like a soldier's fatigues... everyone has heard of Manchuria, few know where it is... just like my work." The very title of the book is a faithful reflection of Mexico's situation at the beginning of the new millennium.
