This truly unique book is the second collaboration between celebrated writer Paul Auster and artist/printmaker Glenn Thomas and features a story within a story from Auster’s The Book of Illusions, called The Inner Life of Martin Frost. This book is produced with fold-out pages featuring Thomas’s screen prints alongside the text of Auster and is packaged in a box. Auster and Thomas first collaborated in 2002. Thomas showed Auster some of his work and suggested a graphic arts project that would combine an Auster text with a series of drawings. Auster liked the idea and asked Thomas to choose one of his texts. A text was selected from The New York Trilogy”City of Glass, a very moving and intense section, which Thomas called The Peter Stillman Monologue. In December of 2003, a limited edition linen portfolio was printed that contained 8 twocolor silkscreen prints plus a signed colophon. Both Auster and Thomas were so pleased with the results that they decided to do a second project, the result of which is The I er Life of Martin Frost. This is a Rozenberg Title.
