Stunning new concertina book from the illustrious Benjamin Courtault

French illustrator Benjamin Courtault has been extremely busy since last we spoke, beavering away on a beautiful concertina book, La Descente. This lovely new piece of screen-printed magic reads like the opening of a Marquez novel, following the story of a technician working for the National Telecommunication Company who’s forced to take a road trip through an extraordinary world to fix some ailing antennas. With each spread rendered in varying three-colour shades, Benjamin demonstrates not only his prowess as a storyteller but also as an exceptional printmaker. Shame they’re all sold out!
