Russell Young handprinted each individual book over a two year period in NY and his California studios whilst creating the American Envy series of paintings.

Russell Young's 'American Envy' series of paintings is an examination of American society, and addresses the idea of the American dream, exposing its fragility. By way of explanation, he says: "Am I asking you to witness my own personal souring of the American dream, or are you being given a deeper glimpse of my lifelong obsession with American Counterculture?"

Hand bound book of indigo pigment, enamel and acrylic paint hand pulled screen prints on Somerset paper with hand stitched cover from vintage American flag.
14 x 12 inches

Signed and numbered XVI from an edition of 60 plus 2 artist proofs.
