FOR HEALTH, A BOOK -- OR APPLE -- A DAY!
Stopped by the library to return a book (Daniel Silva's latest THE HEIST and I think Mr. Silva does his genre so well), and saw a book someone had sculpted into an apple. I'm always interested in which books people reconfigure into something else -- even when they turn it into artwork, doesn't said reconfiguration imply they may not feel the book's not worth reading? For me, for example, I've got a set of books I plan to turn into sculptures and it'd make sense as my raw material are cookbooks...(just kidding; actually, not). Anyway, I made sure to photograph the title of the book too... I guess the author wasn't that effective for the sculptor-reader...
