LEAP OF DEATH is a collaborative project by composer Robert Stillman, artist/writer Anna Fewster, and bookbinder Sarah Bryant.
The work is an an abstract reconstruction of F.W. Murnau’s 4 Devils (1928), a film of which all known copies are lost. Realised as a limited edition of 50 bookwork/LP’s, Leap of Death uses letterpress printed text, trace monotype printed images, and music to create an atmosphere of the ‘4 Devils’ narrative.
This website presents a digital version of the Leap of Death bookwork, which consists of one vinyl LP, six booklets, and three posters, collected in a bound enclosure.
