Artists: Oliver Jeffers, Rory Jeffers, Mac Premo and Duke Riley.
Each artist had five days to complete a spread in response to the one that preceded it.
A small portion of each entry extended onto the following page. Beyond this there was no communication between the artists concerning the content of Book during its making.
Book's first trip across the Atlantic was on 2 June, 2003. It's final trip was on 2 February, 2004. The Book travelled over sixty thousand miles in thirty six weeks.
A hardcover limited edition reproduction of Book was offered for sale. Only 500 signed copies were made, that included an audio CD of the artist's comments about each page.
They are doing it again with Book II.
Around 1992, a few friends and I tried something similar.... except, we were just art students........ and we all lived in the same town........ and we didn't get past 3 of us doing a couple of pages....... still..........
it was a moment.
