Here's just a few of the pieces from the Books as Art exhibit at the Decatur (GA) Public Library. About the only thing these pieces have in common is that they are books. The month-long exhibit runs through September 29th:
Sconce by Dawn Peterson, of Tybee Island, Georgia
Goode's School Atlas by Lynn Skordal of Mercer Island, Washington.
Internet Knowledge by Megan Mattax of Richmond Virginia.
Taxonomy of Shapes by Radha Pandey of Iowa City, Iowa.
Sacred Geometry - Reliquary by Daniel Essig of Asheville, North Carolina.
A list of all the works with artist commentary can be found the exhibit home page.
