The ‘Ocasiocasa Museum of Books’ is a new collection of sculptured masking tape art on rescued old books.
Our form of altered book art is unique; salvaged books are redesigned with sculpted covers while remaining completely intact and all pages still readable.
We began creating book art with our own collection of used books that we had purchased years ago, from Friends of the Library book sales, to read to our kids.
One of the books, an old copy of ‘The Yearling,’ was awarded Best of Show at the Alliance for the Arts ‘Art of the Book’ juried competition and exhibition earlier this year.
Below are a few of the art books in the new collection.
|the lion, the witch, and the wardrobe|
|it happened one day - a children's story book|
|alfred hitchcock presents: stories that go bump in the night|
|love story by erich segal|
|the portable mark twain|
|pets & playtime - a child's reader|
|the viking book of aphorisms|
Our new collection consist of over a dozen books, never shown before, and will be featured in our studio gallery for the September show, beginning September 6th, for the Fort Myers ArtWalk.
It includes classics, mystery, vintage children’s readers, science fiction, and more.
