Black & White Illustrations

Raymond Biesinger

self-published 208 page 8″ square collection of black and white illustrations dating back from the year 2002 to present. The images within had been made for everything from the New York Times to Raymond’s band, the Famines, to Xeroxed zines and arts weeklies. Also included in the book: a chapter containing only previously unseen rough sketches, and a chapter exclusively holding Famines material. The cover and rear are embossed, and there are 9300 words worth of endnotes that give context to the more interesting of the images. Artist’s Statement: “I’ve held one notion close to me for more than a decade now: that we live in a fantastically rich time and place, and almost anything is possible. In that environment, the most original and interesting thing you can do is impose limitations on yourself. Likewise, we live in a time and place where decoration is king and content is out of fashion. I am a fan of the latter, and not the former.”
