Woodpeckers and Books.


Not all my time is spent working on fine or contemporary books. I enjoy working with the book as part of a larger work, placing the book in difficult or unusual situations. The juxtaposition of various elements creating scenarios that either make us think, agree, disagree or just smile. The world of books is not always serious.

Absolutely, totally wonderful. Will you tell a bit more about the woodpecker bookwork?

Dear Velma,

Thank you for your comment. I am happy that you like it.

There are a number of reasons why this work....

As a book binder I am usually concerned with the well being of the book, this was a chance to use and partly damage a book with in a context.

I also enjoy experimenting with the juxtaposition of books and other objects. My work is usually kept in a box in a book case. This work is intended to be free standing or hung on a wall, either way I hope that the eventual owner will make it available for all to see.

The title of the work is; Medirtations Interrupted.

Sorry that is meant to read Meditations Interrupted.
