Beautiful world by Christiaan Diederichs

Beautiful world by Christiaan Diederichs

Beautiful world is a limited edition of seven original hand-made artist’s books by contemporary South African artist Christiaan Diederichs as a special extension of a larger edition of fine art prints by the same title. Each unique book contains seven original drypoint engravings and seven Afrikaans poems  (with english translations) by contemporary South African author Johann de Lange. Hayden Proud at SANG (South African National Gallery in Cape Town) wrote the concise artist’s biography and the preface is penned by well-known cape Town psychiatrist Dr. Eugene Vorster.

All artworks and text in Beautiful World are hand printed in the etching and silkscreening studios at the Frans Masereel Centrum during a three week residency awarded to the artist by the Vlaamse Overhijd from 13 – 28 January 2011 in Kasterlee, Belgium.

All the drypoint engravings in this book are printed, signed, stamped, titled and dated by the artist on 100% Hahnemuhle 230gsm archival etching paper. The red end papers in each book are sheets of 220gsm Fabriano Elle Erre

The books are numbered and signed by both authors.
