ETSY shop is online!

Everything takes a little longer than I estimate, but I've finally managed to set up an online shop at ETSY for my pop-up book "Little Gallery of Nerds & Freaks"!

So, this should make it much easier for you to de-stress your Christmas shopping and shine as the person you are: an outstanding, gifted and incredibly original Santa.

It is your opportunity to purchase a copy of the first numbered and signed edition presented at the Artists' book fair ArtsLibris this year.
The accordion book measures 15 x 7 cm (5,9 x 2,8") and folds out to 110 cm (43,3").
It is composed of 10 different characters and comes in a protective cardboard box.
Price: 55 €
Ships worldwide.

Pop-up book by Jani Lunablau.  First edition of 50 numbered and signed copies, handbound. Available on ETSY.

Artists' book with a poem of Pablo Neruda

This artists' book combines a monoprint of leaves and grasses, a cold needle etching and a quote of the wonderful Sonnet LXXXI by Pablo Neruda stamped onto the print:

No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go,
we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Monoprint of leaves and grasses, cold needle etching and poem of Pablo Neruda. Bookbinding in linen and a protective case.

Another case of domestic violence.




This is not about independence, it's about freedom. How can you brutally beat peaceful civilians to stop them from voting, and claim proudly that you defended Democracy... that's so cynical.
(1-October,  Spanish police officers raided polling stations, beat would-be voters and fired rubber bullets at crowds.)

NERD CARDS: say something!

If you can't have the book, these cards are a great way to get the Nerds & Freaks into your (or other people's) life... get your message across o simply award someone with the Freak-of-the-day-prize.
Each of the ten different Nerd Cards come with stickers in form of speech bubbles and thought balloons... feel free to say something!

ArtsLibris 2017, Artists' Book Fair in Barcelona

Arts Libris is Barcelona's most important fair for contemporary editions and Artists' Books.
This year, I shared a stand with my friend Roberta Bridda from 'Il bosco blu ediciones' - couldn't imagine a better stand-companion!! Her new project is very poetic and of elegant simplicity that always characterizes Roberta's work.

I presented the first edition of 50 hand bound, numbered and signed copies of my pop-up book 'Little Gallery of Nerds & Freaks' and brand new hand bound Nerd-cards.
The feedback was amazing and made me VERY happy indeed!

Great book binding tool from ELBEL LIBRO

This is definitely the most precise folder I've ever tried! A beautiful object itself, it came in an elegant packaging and fulfilled completely my expectations... I absolutely ENJOY working with this tool on my new pop-up book project.
You can purchase this metal folder at elbel libro in Amsterdam, they send it really quickly. It costs 50 €.
