Title: PETER GREENAWAY: 92 Drawings : The Tulse Luper Suitcases, Volume One
Author: Greenaway, Peter
Price: Not Available
Description: Milano: Charta, 2011. 29cm., pbk., 92pp. with numerous color plates. Summary: The Tulse Luper Suitcases is British filmmaker Peter Greenaway's ambitious multimedia tale of the adventures of one Tulse Luper. Born in 1911 and possibly still alive, Tulse Henry Purcell Luper was a writer, collector, criminal and world traveler. His sole legacy is a mysterious collection of 92 packed suitcases dispersed around the globe that purportedly constitute a complete encyclopedia of the planet and all that is in it, classified by object, event and idea, and from which absolutely nothing is omitted. In its entirety, The Tulse Luper Suitcases project extends well beyond the traditional feature-film format to include DVDs, websites, texts, video games, theater and exhibitions. This volume features Luper's drawings of the fabled suitcases, which Greenaway exhibited in the summer of 2010 at the Rivelino Gallery in Locarno, Switzerland.
