Abstract (English)

A two volume artist's book in the shape of a wing, to accompany Buvoli's animated film, Flying–Practical Training for Beginners (all images and texts in the book were used in the making of the film). Farver provides a brief descriptive analysis of the film, and reflects on Buvoli's preoccupation with superheroes and interest in relations between the real/imaginary.
