Paperweight Book Cartomancy, Oggetti d’Arte LIMITED EDITION
HAND PAINTED PORCELAIN ARTWORK ISSUED IN A LIMITED AND NUMBERED EDITION OF 50.
An open book, which is part of a series of reproductions of open or closed books, or of those stacked one on top of each other from the title: La Biblioteca di Doccia.
Ginori 1735 reissues “La Biblioteca di Doccia: Alto codice della cartomanzia” that, in its name, reveals the attention of the architect towards esotericism, represented on the left-hand page by two cards held in the jointed hand of a mannequin and on the right-hand page by the writing “Alto code della cartomanzia”, signed by Gio Ponti, author and editor. The card suits allude to a message, contrasting the three of hearts and the two of spades, a positive card and a negative card. The book paperweight, in hand-painted porcelain, faithful reproduction of the work conceived by Gio Ponti, is reissued by Ginori 1735 in a numbered and limited edition.
