In this day of the Nook, the Kindle, and the Iphone – books are feeling threatened.
(not in our house though. But I’ve heard about it!)
This week the challenge is to do something with a book.
You could just hollow one out to keep special secret things in it.
Or you could go for ART.
That is Marcy from Recycled Reads
How about a slice of Book cake?
By Artist Robert The, actually, showing at the Walker, for you Minneapolians.
Now, let it be said that part of this challenge breaks my heart. I love books. And cutting into one seems like a sacralegde. But, I do have one, and I enjoyed it, and I tried to sell it so that someone else could enjoy it too, and I was told that the store would not take it. They have given up on hard bound books almost entirely. (and this is no great work of fiction… not a collector’s item by any stretch.) So I feel safe to use that.
Have fun. I cannot see what you come up with.
