Condition: See description

Graphic designer Albert De Nola's dummy (edition limited to 350 numbered copies), this one with embossed "For Alberto" on the limitation page and the etchings; assembled model of the box - card stock in black and gold; booklet on cream stock ("containing nine texts and the justification of the tirage"), tied with a decorative rope; three plates with etchings. Box with a few worn spots to edges; light general wear; booklet and etchings fine; overall in very good to near fine condition. Artist Pierre Spalaikovitch (1946 - ) was born in Belgrad in a Franco - Serbian family. After working as a scenography assistant, he moved to France in 1971 and later, in 1984, to California, where he worked with various mediums, but specifically mastered the process of etching. He opened an art school in Los Angeles and developed a new etching technique with a copperplate aquatint. Pierre moved back to France in 1998 and continued working and exhibiting all over the world. In 1988, inspired by Salvador Dali, Spalaikovitch created the current set to contain 9 plates, each one illustrating an important subject or moment of Dali's life, which when placed together in two specific orders, combine into a portrait of Dali and a portrait of Dali's wife Gala. Also to be included were additional 2 large, hand-colored etchings and the booklet, describing each moment. The overall design of the layout (box, booklet, etc.) were created by Bay Area graphic artist and board game inventor Albert De Nola. As the current set was his working model, it included 3 of the 9 plates, dedicated to him, with embossed "Alberto" beneath each plate.
