Tal R is an artist usually recognisable for his vibrant use of colour. He’s built his reputation on packing every degree of the spectrum into a single canvas. So long-term fans might be surprised to discover that his latest book, The Moon , is much more chromatically restrained than usual, printed in muted blues and reds. Don’t worry though, inside you’ll find that Tal’s sense of mischief is still very much intact, the characters within engaging in all sorts of lewd acts and deviant behaviour. They’re all smiling too, so what’s not to enjoy?
This edition of The Moon is a reproduction of Lubok’s 2011 book of Tal’s sketches; the original drawings duplicated with photopolymer plates on a cylinder press. As a result the whole package is incredibly tactile, with each drawing lightly embossed onto the page. Lovely stuff.
