Augustine Books

Two books created for A Buncha Book Artists member show at the Harry Wood Gallery from Oct. 27-Nov. 4. Laser cut plywood with stains and thread. Smaller book measures 5.5×3.5″; larger book is 8.5×5.5″. I imagined these as hardcover and pocket paperback versions of the same book. The text reads:

“And the people went there and admired the high mountains, the wide wastes of the sea and the mighty downward rushing streams, and the ocean, and the course of the stars, and forgot themselves.”

— St. Augustine
