The standard version of Project Rainbow was published in an edition of 2,500 on the occasion of the exhibition, Worlds within Worlds at Deitch Projects in New York in October 2003. The book takes the viewer on a journey into the details of McGinness’ layered silkscreen compositions with works made specifically for this publication. This process reveals a fractal-based, worlds-within-worlds structure that mirrors the parallel-dimensions model of the universe. Only full-bleed details of paintings are presented in this artist’s book. This Special Edition version was made in an edition of 300, each with a uniquely painted canvas cover.
