The Shepherdess and the Chimneysweep
Deeply Game’s 9th book, The Shepherdess and the Chimney Sweep, is now available. Andrew Rottner, of Super Classy Publishing, collaborated on this tribute to printing’s golden age. The story is a misremembered parable, written by Christina Lauritsen. It re-imagines H.C. Andersen’s classic tale of the same name as a story of revelation and madness. The visual progression of the book mirrors the plot, pitting the beauty of the decorative arts against the intense and unpredictable messiness of human experience. This book confronts the inevitability of loss as well as bows to intellectual freedom and its attendant risks.
The book is roughly 7″x9″, with images (drawn by Andrew Rottner) and text letterpressed on to rich giclée backgrounds. The book features two 26″ wide foldouts and a cut-marbled-paper and brocade cover.
There are 50 copies for sale. $900. With matching clamshell box, $1100.
