Box for a book of 2000 pages. Series of 35 copies. “By sequencing recurring patterns from the streets of Kolkata, ‘The Veil of Maya 1’ materializes on paper the flayed skin of a city. Layers and layers of colorful posters and promising ads cover the walls like an aesthetic bacteria; it’s intermittence is almost compulsive. This 2000-page volume brings together an overflowing torrent of ‘imaginary photographs’ in an editorial ideal of copiousness.” Custom-made box by Laurel Parker Book
