This lot includes one limited edition print from the book.

Joanna Neborsky is a Los Angeles-based artist and animator. Her first book, an illustrated series of gruesome turn-of-the-century French news items translated by Luc Sante, was published by Mark Batty Publisher in September 2010. She drew one hundred literary caricatures -- from Shakespeare to Colette -- for Tom Nissley's literary almanac "A Reader's Book of Days", published by Norton in November 2013. Her clients include HarperCollins, Farrar, Straus & Giroux, the New York Times, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, and W Magazine.

In March 2011, the Italian arts press Edizioni Corraini, published her illustrated edition of Daniil Kharms’s "Tumbling Old Women". The story is a short and surreal Russian tale from 1936 in which six women tumble from their windows and shatter to pieces.
