The Sky is Touching You — Åbäke


A celebration of being always naked under our clothes and masks! This publication gathers life drawings of trusting and enthusiastic strangers who answered positively to the question: may I draw you? The results are punctuated by short stories about skins by Charlotte York. This edition of 303 copies comes with a randomly selected original life drawing as the cover sleeve.

Probably some of the best books on the planet, and we say that as a publisher. We have always loved and respected the work of Dent-De-Leone – their originality and curiosity is second to none.
