Baby Comet Face is Yann Gerstberger's (b. 1983, Cagnes sur Mer, France) debut monograph, presenting more than forty of his large-scale textile tapestries and an extensive series of drawings, sketches, and collages straight from the artist’s studio. Gerstberger’s work is set alongside texts by anthropologist-ethnobotanist Wade Davis and Mexican poet Gabriela Jauregui. In addition to the main volume, Baby Comet Face includes a 32-page annex of Gerstberger’s exhibitions and large-scale murals. It was printed in a limited run of 800 copies, on five different paper stocks, with silk-screened cover.
