cool book: james jean's rift

If you're a fan of acclaimed artist James Jean, you probably already know about his latest book Rift, which debuted at Comic-Con and arrived in stores earlier this month. It showcases a brand-new collection of art in a really cool, neatly folded, accordion-style book. Take a look:

Here's the publisher's product description:
Almost a decade into his astounding career, James Jean has emerged as one of contemporary art's most important voices. From sell-out gallery shows in New York City and crowded signings at Comic-Con to kudos from the fashion world for his work for Prada, Jean's richly detailed art has struck a chord with fans across the globe. Rift showcases a brand-new collection of art in an elegant accordion-book format. Inside, two haunting landscapes span the connected pages folded in a variety of ways, the pages reveal myriad images hidden within the larger paintings.
The book itself is a work of art. I haven't picked it up, but it looks amazing. And it's only $9.35 right now at Amazon. For more information, go to the Chronicle Books website here. (You can also get it, and other James Jean stuff, at the Giant Robot Store. And for more information about Jamese Jean and his art, go to his website here.
