We are please to announce the first Red Lemonade limited edition created by Jim Hodges, chair of the Sculpture department at Yale University and subject of a major mid-career retrospective by the Walker Art Center and Dallas Museum of Art. This artist’s edition of Someday This Will be Funny consists of 21 individual books containing short fiction by Lynne Tillman, stories including “That’s How Wrong My Love Is,” “Chartreuse,” “Madame Realism’s Conscience,” and “Save Me from the Pious and the Vengeful.” Each of the 21 books has a different color cover so the reader may rearrange the 2x2 book grid in the 18" x 24" display case to present a different four-color image. To aid in presentation the display case is sheathed in plexiglass. Jim Hodges’s artist edition of Tillman’s short story collection thereby tests the boundaries of the bound book by unpacking and repackaging it and freeing the reader-cum-viewer to do the same, offering a shifting, kaleidoscopic grid of color as one possible incarnation, one moment in the interplay of text and image. This Limited Artist's Edition by Jim Hodges is being published by Red Lemonade in an edition of 275 and is designed by Other Means. Red Lemonade is a new model independent publisher combining 21st century technology and open source/crowd source practices with the techniques and forms of book publishing honed over five hundred years. And here is a link to a slideshow that gives you more of a sense of the object:


This is what print looks like when content is taken under its wing. Nice going, Red Lemo.
Also, I should mention, the norm with these artists editions is that the price goes up as supplies dwindle. So not only is the pre-order price an incredibly deal for an artist whose sculptures have been selling in the six figures at auction (seriously...), but the list price is also likely to increase over the course of this year and next.
