I love books. It’s a bit of an obsession really. I only feel relaxed once I know there are books on my very full shelf that I haven’t read yet. It’s comforting. Some book covers just call out to you don’t they? There is so much art involved in a book. From the writing of course to the design of the cover to the font used to best tell the story. Just when you thought books couldn’t get any cooler, Kelli Anderson steps up to the plate and smashes it out of the park.
The 100% paper installation she set up for the New York Public Library is pure art. The detailing and craft is amazingly amazing. Plain paper forms sculptures that look exactly like (if not cooler) than the original book cover.
