Publisher's description: Published on the occasion of Marcel Dzama's (born 1974) collaborative ballet with choreographer Justin Peck and musician Bryce Dessner at the New York City Ballet, The Book of Ballet documents the genesis of all aspects of the project. It begins with "The Most Incredible Thing," the Hans Christian Andersen story on which the ballet is based, and presents Dzama's costume designs. The images not only show final design decisions, but also chart the changes in costumes as the project unfolded, and the ways in which Dzama's conception of the characters in the ballet evolved. The book closes with a conversation between Dzama and Peck in which choreographer and artist discuss their collaborative process, and the important role of renowned composer Dessner in bringing the project to life. Also included is a poster made specifically for this book by the artist.
