When confronted with the opportunity to make a children''s book, the internationally renowned painter, photographer and printmaker Chuck Close quickly took to the idea of a publication without words. Scribble Book, presented in two accordion-folded volumes, is a self-portrait that emerges incrementally from the printing process.
Close, who is known for his portraits, offers a mini-master class by deconstructing what he calls a scribble self portrait: he draws in one of nine colors at a time until he has completed his image. Then he attempts to demystify the process by breaking it down into the separate stages of drawing and the separate effect of each addition of a new color. This is a fascinating book for fans of Close, art students and art historians, and the eclectic reader who enjoys rummaging through an artist's mind via a detailed look at his or her process.
