Publisher's Description

Handmade Limited Edition of 239 signed copies. 

Let Me Fall Again is my reflection on the concept of falling through the story of one of the first balloonists, Charles Leroux, who was born in America and died at age 32 while performing a parachute jump in Tallinn.

“My intention was to create an imaginary journey in the footsteps of his performances. This book was born at the intersection of real story of this balloonist and my reflection about the concept of falling.

“In my book there are several additional inserts. I used the same principles as  origami art. Through origami the paper undergoes a continuing metamorphosis, one fold at a time. And it's a great challenge to bring one piece of paper into a new shape. Also for packing a parachute, precision is key to avoid a parachute jump in which the parachute fails to open.

“The edition is of 239 copies as Leroux made 239 jumps.” —Julia Borissova
