Derek White (again)

I often mention Derek White on the blog because his Calamari Press does some of the most interesting work around. He just published his book "Poste Restante," which arrived in our mail today.

I haven't got the chance to read it yet, but the illustrations are amazing. The feeling I get from them is someone looking back at postcards, colonialism and exhibition culture (which all come together less knowingly in the NY Museum of Natural History) through the lense of Surrealism and the historical avant-garde.

One of the stories is in the most recent Action,Yes, but the collage style is not representative of the books as a whole.
