The Mermaid

Accordian book by Isabella Rotman, originally inspired by All the World is Green by Tom Waits, as seen here. The comic was later adapted with different words for a large installation piece at the Sullivan Galleries 2013 Spring BFA show.  Now it has found it’s final form as a 4 foot long accordian book, offset printed by Alan Drew Cesar of Downfall Arts. Each book is hand cut, glued, and folded. The lyrics used in the song are taken from a remorsefull sea shanty about a mermaid that serves as an omen of shipwreck.

I am releasing this book tonight. Feb 1st, at the Live Zine show! Come by for a copy. I am also making this available on my etsy please check it out.
