Book of the Week: Fernando Botero, Assouline Special Edition
Few artists have created a world as distinctive as that of Botero, who enjoys an exceptional position as one of the most successful contemporary artists.
This spectacular hand-bound Ultimate Collection volume includes previously unpublished works and was curated in collaboration with the renowned artist himself from among Botero’s most important works from each period of his singular oeuvre. A special numbered limited edition of 100 copies, printed on cotton paper, features a tip-on illustration and hand-signed ex libris plate drawn by Botero especially for this publication.
