ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: "Conceived as a visual lyric composed independently by Derek Dudek and Keiji Shinohara—two artists of very different media—Language of Her Body explores the photographic nude female figure, re-interpreted through a landscape of sumi-e (Japanese brush painting). A desire to suggest alternate readings of the visual led to a third element that expands the meaning of the book: fragments of text, by author Amy Bloom, are typographically embedded into the images. Even though the page width is approximately the length of your arm, a feeling of intimacy is retained by its diminutive height" - Robin Price publisher
