Introduction to Fantastic Girls, Future Landscapes & The Most Beautiful Birds Ever Seen is an accordion styled book by illustrator Gary Fernandez. Of the self-published book, he says, ‘there are 500 copies printed in Old Mill 250 grams paper. The paper gives the opposite texture to the illustrations. So if the illustrations are bright and glossy, the paper has the opposite properties and the result looks very strange, fine and elegant. In the beginning, the idea was just to explore new approaches, to review elements and concepts from my sketch books, and to look for new and more complex and detailed shapes and textures. The outcome is a reinvented own surrealistic universe full of strange birds, girls and dreamscapes’.
