Matriochka is a small book that tells a very short, but very intricate story. 16 Russian dolls shrink from page to page, the last one measuring only a few millimeters high. Fanette Mellier invites us to explore this multicolored family in microscopic detail. Observed under a magnifying glass, the ordinarily imperceptible details of the printing become the motifs that cover the tiny figurines. This book, in which hot gilding skips a generation, speaks of singularity and transmission.
