FRESNEL'S TOWER pays homage to the 19th French physicist Augustin Fresnel who overcame early learning disabilities to develop the complex lens for lighthouses given his name.

Designed as a sculptural book which allows the viewer to assemble their own lighthouse, it includes a hand colored photogravure. Board cylinders are wrapped with handpainted paper printed with the reproductions of an 18th century lighthouse. Inside each cylinder is a reproduction of a monotype of clouds.

It was published as a limited edition of 38 copies. Out of Print.
