book autopsy

This is a custom order that I just finished. To Kill A Mockingbird. It was hard finding this book. Not only is it on every schools required reading list, but this is the only edition that has illustrations. After finally finding it, it was very difficult to make that first cut.

I am truly amazed at the ability some people have to arrange words in such a way that we, the readers, can actually ‘see’ into the imagined world of the writer. We relate, feel, and become invested in the characters so deeply that we are pulled into their world for a brief moment of escape. In some cases I remember certain books with such fondness that I feel as if I experienced them. I still have a connection to Stewart Little and The Borrowers. Books, for me, come alive. That is why I have started creating book sculptures. My book sculptures are my way of showing what the words on the pages create in the imagination of the readers. 

* Book sculpture measures (framed) 12x16x2.5 - Sculpture comes in a glossy black wooden, glass front shadow box that can be displayed on the wall or on table top.
