Limited-edition, hand-made lyric books for Machine Rock band CHEMLABs seminal first album, Burn Out At The Hydrogen Bar. Each one is a unique piece of art designed, crafted and created by CHEMLABs front-man and conceptualist, Jared Louche. On his return from the 2018 USA tour which celebrated 25 years since the release of Burn Out At The Hydrogen Bar, Louche decided to mark the anniversary with these one-of-a-kind lyric books as unique and individually realized commemorative artworks. Each finished piece incorporates a broad spectrum of materials: the hard covers are sourced from a complete set of a 1934 printing of Charles Dickens books; mediums range from many kinds of paint, ink, chalk and resin; materials include collaged maps, magazines and medical books, as well as physical objects such as pieces of vinyl records, springs, guitar cables, feathers, wires, nails, decaying cloth, insects and diodes.The pages feature Burn Out lyrics which have been handwritten by Jared, scanned, customized and bound into the covers. Each book is individually signed and numbered by the artist. This commemorative Burn Out At The Hydrogen Bar set is extremely limited and will not be repeated. In addition, the set is not yet complete, and therefore specific commissions can still be considered. "TERRA INFIRMA" This cover is collaged from a book of London maps circa 1954 and the St John Ambulance First Aid manual circa 1965.
The map opens in a center-cut drop-leaf segment over the gold leaf CD Dickens intaglio on the front. The drop leaf segment is held in place with a clasp map segment so that the intaglio design can be either viewed or kept secret.
