Artwork description

This book, made in collaboration with Marie Gregoire, features drawings and thoughts inspired by the coffered ceiling in the oratory of the Hôtel Lallemant, a Renaissance-era building in Bourges. The fourteen coffers decorated with cherubs are the inspiration for Righi's intricate drawings and calligraphies showing the circles of time, while the sixteen coffers decorated with crests are the inspiration for the engraved frontispiece. Two additional engravings further illustrate the book.

This deluxe edition is one of only 3 copies that are accompanied by an engraved copper plate used in the printing of the book. This copy includes the plate for the first print in the book which is featured on the book's front wrapper. The plate is mounted on a board lined with decorative, indigo-colored paper and is protected by a white facing mat. Housed in the box with the book, the mat is titled and signed by the artist below the plate.
