An artists’ book inspired by a famous party held at the American embassy in Moscow and the literary classic that it helped to inspire.
'The Ambassador's Ball' illustrates how the Spring Festival on 24th April 1935 at the US embassy in Moscow might have unfolded. Something about the chaos of this event against the backdrop of such an elegant neo-classical building caught my imagination last summer, and I set to work.
The finished book is a panorama of lasercut scenes against a white embossed background. For the full story behind the book, please visit https://joannarobson.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/the-ambassadors-ball.html
