A story of aviation by golden cosmos
The first book from Berlin illustration dynamic duo Golden Cosmos and their maiden book collaboration with Nobrow Press.
This beautiful Leporello book folds out to a stunning 139cm panorama detailing the history and mythology of flight, from the legendary attempts of Icarus, to the revolutionary innovations of the Jet Age! The wrap-around cover provides educational entries for each panel, detailing notable benchmarks in the history of aviation.
A fantastic educational tool and a great work of art, Nobrow’s best-selling Leporello series is an ideal gift for people of all ages! A beautiful concertina book that can be read as a book, displayed on a mantlepiece, or even framed as a print.
Golden Cosmos was set up in 2010 as a collborative moniker for German artistic couple Daniel Doltz and Doris Freigofas. Their deep knowledge of traditional printmaking techniques and experiences in self publishing that have won them widespread critical acclaim in illustration circles made them the perfect choice for our trademark concertina series. Their bold use of colour and adeptness for shape and form recall the bold patterns and geometry of early Russian constructivism, with a nod to mid century French commercial art. Whilst the book itself can be read, displayed or framed, the new wraparound cover allows us at Nobrow to add an educational element to the series, with entries for each panel of the concertina detailing the notable benchmarks in the history and mythology of aviation.
Praise for the first of our concertina series Rise and Fall:
“A beautifully crafted, exquisitely detailed, illustrated concertina book that’s just as good decorating you wall as it is to flip through, and just as good for kids as it is for young at heart grown ups.”
