Ronin Furdyk | Twenty-Four Composers
Toronto, Canada: Perish Publishing, 2016
 pp., 14 x 14 cm., staple-bound
Edition size unknown
The sweetest purchase I made at the Edition Toronto fair last month, with easily the best artist biography: "Ronin is nine years old and lives in Calgary."
Furdyk has had a fascination with the symphony since the age of three, recreating the orchestra with his stuffed animals after attending a concert. This square booklet (Mr Men sized?) contains only a small sampling from his hundreds of related drawings. The book features portraits of Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert, Satie and nineteen others, as well as a drawing of the performing orchestra.
Now a teenager, Ronin is reportedly a Foo Fighters fan.
Available for $10 as a poster or a book, (or $15 for both), from the publisher, here.
