I love this book

I created this book a while ago and submitted it to two different publications. It was not accepted by either of them. I just can't believe it. I think it's a beautiful book! Why wouldn't they want it in their publication?


I painted two artist canvases and used them as the book covers. I also painted the backsides of the canvases and attached some sea shells. The backside of the canvas acts as a shadow box of sorts. The pages of the book are made up of white copy paper as well as pages from an old atlas.

I adorned the spine with wires, beads and a small glass bottle that contains some tiny pieces of beach glass that I have collected.
