Flamer by Mike Curato


Exhibited at DESIGN MIAMI. 2023 Created exclusively for the The Book of Love fundraiser for the Books & Books Literary Foundation, this limited-edition print features Rudy Weissenberg’s original artwork celebrating Flamer by Mike Curato, one of hundreds of beloved titles subject to recent book bans and challenges. According to Weissenberg: “The image is a digital composite of rainbows taken from famous paintings executed during the last 400 years, sourced from royalty-free databases. It is a celebration of the rainbow throughout the ages—a natural phenomenon that stands as a proxy for calm, hope, and happiness and has been adopted since the 1970s by the LGBTQ community as a symbol of pride.” All proceeds benefit the Books & Books Literary Foundation’s urgent fight for the right to read.

Everyone's going through changes—but for Aiden, the stakes feel higher. As he navigates friendships, deals with bullies, and spends time with Elias (a boy he can't stop thinking about), he finds himself on a path of self-discovery and acceptance.
