John Derian Picture Book Hardcover
Welcome to the world of John Derian!
John Derian is a designer who transforms printed images from the past, and in doing so transports the viewer to another world. His discoveries of illustrations, etchings, chromolithographs, rare reproductions, and other printed matter from previous centuries form a visual language beloved by collectors and the curious alike. Poring over John Derian Picture Book is like following the artist into a dusty corner of an antique bookstore and uncovering a treasure-image after jewel-like image, each beautiful, silent, nostalgic, mysterious, like something from a dream.
