Dawn Mellor, ‘Rose Dewitt Bukkater from Titanic (Kate Winslet)’, Pastel on Paper, 2010. Monograph Printing | Custom Book Printing NYC | Deep Dimensional Digital Color Printing on 80lb. Strathmore Superfine Cover + Custom Fold Book Jacket + Perfect Bind, 9 x 15 inches.

Maniacal Monograph Printing NYC:

PREMIERE PREDATORY BEAUTY

Dawn Mellor’s lifelong preoccupation with celebrity comes to a climax strong enough to sink a ship in The Conspirators. Commemorating the artist’s solo gallery show in the homeland of the Heidelberg press, this oversized 9 x 15 Monograph is a roaring feast of color and personal chaos. Looking at its flawless cover, we crumble in the face Kate Winslet’s ROSE DEWITT BUKATER: here a haughty grotesque, radiating with judgemental grandeur. The Titanic herself wasn’t this formidable.

The mastery of Mellor’s oil pastel techniques were brought to this cinematic tome with Deep Dimensional Digital Color Printing. A favorite at our NYC Print Shop, the deep pigments reach through without bleeding through. This process produces a print layered thick with ink, strengthening the artist’s use of perspective with each lot. Touch the finished page and you’ll be reminded of a freshly contoured & powdered face. It’s that coated. We must admit, the more the print industry administers Deep Dimensional Digital Color, we stand to recalibrate the general reader’s sensory response center to need more color, now, immediately, forever. To that we say, Color us thrilled.

Beyond the custom specialty printing present in this book, we have a gripping panorama of the darkness boiling in Hollywood’s most recognizable heroines & villains; a darkness we discover has really only ever been hinted at. Because Dawn certainly showed up to make sure the dark got darker.

Ultimately, The Conspirators is a perfect illustrated companion for your Hamptons weekend escape! The mystique of the book cover should keep you entranced while you jet off on the jitney. We recommend saving the book’s interior contents for viewing at least an hour past midnight. Crack the spine of this intimidating beauty as your fire-pit pyre smolders down to ambient coals. Watch as the rushes of gushing color swirl with nightmarish aplomb…
