James Jean: “PARALLEL LIVES” IBOOKJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 12 Jun 2013
February 2013 cover artist James Jean has teamed up with Pressure Printing to bring his Parallel Lives exhibition to life... er, to iLives. Parallel Lives has just been released as an iBook, "a 58-page collection cataloging James Jean’s 2013 New York solo show at Jack Tilton Gallery. The book contains 47 plates reproducing every drawing, painting and mixed media work in the show. The digital edition includes full-screen, Retina-resolution images and 179 additional process photographs."
As Pressure notes on their blog, "On a Retina screen, you’ll see far more detail than you would in the printed book. The images are bright and crisp; the color is fantastic — they glow. Outside of getting a good look at the originals, I’ll go so far as to say that there’s currently no better way to see these pieces of art than in this Retina-iBook form."
