An exploration in the anthropomorphic possibilities of the book form

This series of five books explores our physical relationship with books and our expectations about their functionality. By subverting those assumptions and presenting viewers with book forms that are experienced in new ways, the books take on a voice and personality that communicate an affect without the need for content within the pages. Because their humorous qualities come from the forms themselves rather than the content, they take on the role of both delightful object and unexpected encounter.

Various sizes, 2016
