Les Jardins disparus. 2000.

Judith Rothchild

* 1950 in Boston

Marie Rouanet’s short text, reprinted from the last chapter of her book Tout jardin est Eden, is accompanied by eight mezzotints by Judith Rothchild. The book in the form of a leporello is printed on Hahnemühle paper. Almost all the images include a snail wandering around as if it has invaded the page, as it would an abandoned garden. The wrappers are screen printed green with a helix design which is also reproduced on the slipcase and boxes. Signed by the author and the artist. Edition of 50. Size 17 x 22 cm.


The text is hand set and printed on an 1867 Albion press by Mark Lintott. The slipcases and boxes are by Claude Vallin.


The first eight copies (1/50 to 8/50), the deluxe edition, are presented in clamshell boxes and include one of the original copper mezzotint plates. The regular edition (9/50 to 50/50) is presented in slipcases. Copies 45/50 to 49/50 are not for sale. The copy numbered 50/50 is reserved for the Bibliothèque Nationale de France.
