Art Books

It worked! Remember when I talked about the art of book sculpture here? Well, today was the day I tried "3 repetitive folds" and I am really happy with the result. I was reading a memoir about a woman who fell in love with a Frenchman and rearranged her life to live with him in Paris. Sounds great, eh? Well, the writing was terrible and at some point yesterday I decided I would enjoy it more as art, then literature. Got a bookclub book you just can't make it through? I think this is the ultimate in repurposing. The process is surprisingly like knitting. Slow, repetetive and you can see your progress almost immediately. Try it!
