Arabian Eros is an album of lithographs inspired by Karasik’s travels to Central Asia in the 1980s. The artist printed this English album in a 17 copy edition plus 2 supplementary artist proofs. It consists of a title page, imprint, table of contents and nine colour lithographs of which two are double page spreads. The titles are printed opposite the seven full-page lithographs; the two double-page spreads have the title incorporated in the composition. The six folded sheets (24 pages) are bound in greenish brown cardboard covers. The book is kept in a clamshell box made of cardboard covered with lithographed paper.
