Marco Palumbo-Rodriguez & Jorden Haley
La Peste is a collaborative book of images by BIRD OV PREY (Jorden Haley) and VACANT STATE (Marco Palumbo-Rodrigues), both represented in their signature stark black and white graphic style.
Each artist has contributed a total of 50 images, alternating throughout the book. Perfectly complementing one other, the works are a mix of occult / punk / anti-authoritarian / fetishistic themes (and overall often with a touch of dark humor).
Although containing no narrative, the images flow from one page to the next for a seamless graphic journey and are preceded by a forward by the esteemed Alex Virji.
The book itself is an A5 (148mm x 210mm or approx. 6” x 8” ) sized black fabric textured hardcover with black stamping on the front, back and spine. The interior pages are black and white printed graphics on luxe matte stock.
