magic books

Sculpted a series of interactive books to be distributed through free libraries. I wanted to make something intricate and intimate for a stranger, something that would spark the imagination and offer connection across time and space. One book invited the readers to play with gloves tipped with pen nibs. Another offered a small, embroidered quilt and clay animals. A third contained seeds.
