Matriochka is a small book that tells a very short, but very intricate story. Sixteen Russian dolls shrink from page to page, the last one measuring only a few millimeters high. Fanette Mellier invites us to explore this multicolored family in microscopic detail. Observed under a magnifying glass, the ordinarily imperceptible details of the printing become the motifs that cover the tiny figurines. Oh, and this book is a friggin’ marvelous delight, printed in six colors + gold stamping. We can’t get enough of Fanette Mellier’s work.
