My first completed book sculpture for 2018 was carved from a 1961 edition of “How to Grow Vegetables and Fruits by the Organic Method” from Rodale Books.
As you can see from the black bookbinding tape wrapping the spine, this is a book that was badly damaged and previously repaired. Damaged books are my favorite to work with, but difficult to find because most of them simply get thrown out. From my own limited experience, cheap books are far easier to find than damaged books, but maybe I’m not looking in the right places.
More coming soon !
