Illustrated by Golden Cosmos for Nobrow Press

Full colour 20 panel concertina Leporello

……………………. 

Created by Berlin illustration dynamic duo Golden Cosmos, this beautiful Leporello book folds out to a stunning 139cm panorama detailing the history and mythology of flight, from the legendary attempts of Icarus, to the revolutionary innovations of the Jet Age! The wrap-around cover provides educational entries for each panel, detailing notable benchmarks in the history of aviation.

A fantastic educational tool and a great work of art, Nobrow’s best-selling Leporello series is an ideal gift for people of all ages!

Golden Cosmos was set up in 2010 as a collborative moniker for German artistic couple Daniel Doltz and Doris Freigofas. Their deep knowledge of traditional printmaking techniques and experiences in self publishing that have won them widespread critical acclaim in illustration circles made them the perfect choice for our trademark concertina series. Their bold use of colour and adeptness for shape and form recall the bold patterns and geometry of early Russian constructivism, with a nod to mid century French commercial art.

Nobrow is the joint creative endeavour of two friends and ex-St Martin’s alumni: Sam Arthur and Alex Spiro. Since its inception in 2008 Nobrow Ltd. has sought to make great design, ground-breaking art and narrative, luscious production values and environmental consciousness central to its mission. With an emphasis on bringing fresh, young talent to wider audiences, as well as to remind the world of the great talents that have been producing stunning work for many years, Nobrow have sought to bring new stories to life, as well as to revive well-worn yarns for new generations of people.
