by Giovanni Battista Bracelli

The Bizzarie di Varie Figure Artist Edition pays homage to the graphical series of 47 etchings produced by Florentine artist Giovanni Battista Bracelli in 1624. The pre-eminent series, characterised by its vivid figurations and imaginative amalgamation of human and object elements, became a milestone for the time ahead and a defining reference point for any future visualisation of android form - 200 years before the advent of mechanical, robotic science in Western Tradition.

The facsimile edition suite consists of 16 individual, unique prints expertly reproduced in a manual off-set and traditional letterpress, presented in a handmade, riveted box out of archival fibre carton with gold embossing.
