Book Sculptures by Anita Francis

I find it an exciting challenge to explore a way to give a relinquished book a new life. The process of remodeling damaged and discarded books and their jackets into sculptural art pieces has developed over the past several years, stemming from my life-long practice of painting and of crafting objects of art by hand. Through the process of folding and the cutting away of parts of a book's pages, revealing its interior, the remaining fragments are still attached to the binding.

The exhibit was fabulous! I was so intrigued by the detail and creativeness! We hope to have Anita exhibit at the Havelock-Craven County Public Library.
