(Art) The Intricacies of “Breathing”

Jian Guo, known as “Breathing,” is a Chinese-Australian artist and illustrator whose colorful works seem almost like stills of bright crystalline contraptions — stained-glass orrerries that turn to the tinkling music of the spheres. It’s not surprising then that he’s done a number of Chinese-edition book covers of classic “cosmic fantasies” like Lord of the Rings and Gene Wolfe’s Book of The New Sun.
