Joseph Cornell's Manual of Marvels by Leppanen-Guerra, Analisa, ed. & Dickran Tashjian
Joseph Cornell's Manual of Marvels: How Joseph Cornell Reinvented a French Agricultural Manual to Create an American Masterpiece
by Leppanen-Guerra, Analisa, ed. & Dickran Tashjian
 
In the early 1930s Cornell came upon the Journal d'Agriculture Practique, a voluminous 1911 handbook filled with engravings and photographs of livestock, vegetables, and farm machinery. Over time he altered and reinvented many of the pages, inserting collages, photomontages, and occasional drawings. In a unique venture, 60 of the most extraordinary pages have been re-created in virtual facsimile, with cutouts, glue-ons, and other unique handmade details. Included in the specially-designed box are a DVD of the entire work, including pop-up commentaries, and a volume of essays on the Journal and Cornell's artistic practice.
