Meryl Perloff Book Arts
Limited only by imagination
“Library” utilizes a reclaimed wooden wine crate as the structure for a collection of books and paper material. Pamphlets, books in slipcases, recycled portions of discarded paperback books, and perfect bound books all in miniature are fitted into the compartments of the box. Shredded paper filler adds texture and fills the voids in the composition. The top ornament is constructed of folded pages from a discarded paperback.
The variety of book types and binding styles is examined as a metaphor for the selection of book types found in a library.
