James Joyce · Finn’s Hotel : a Suite by Michael Caine

A series of 13 highly-detailed original burin engravings (3 on wood, 10 on laser card plastic) created by Caine as his more abstract (non-figurative) visual response to the recondite texts or ‘epiclets’ of Finn’s Hotel, the unpublished James Joyce novel that he designed and printed. So very much an alternative set of images to the narrative illustrations of the Ithys Press 2013 edition. Title-page and colophon hand-set in Etrusco, Helvetica condensed and Syntax types.
Michael Caine’s major work since his edition of Khlebnikov’s texts : Zaoumni (2001).

La série de 13 gravures minutieuses au burin (3 sur bois, 10 sur carte laser) réalisée par Michael Caine en 2014, constitue sa réponse plastique et volontairement abstraite au texte inédit de James Joyce, Finn’s Hotel, qu’il a composé et imprimé à la main en 2013 pour le compte du Ithys Press, Dublin.
