The book as sculptured temple.

This was my attempt to make a book as a carved ‘container’ for the content – the epic of Apples of Aeden. It meant inventing a way to carve the book edges. When all five volumes are at a stable stage i hope to do a limited edition set of five, presumably boxed… This method can be used on a normal-priced perfect-bound paperback, so it is not too expensive to make, though it is hand-finished. i sold all i got round to making of this limited edition (13 or so out of 999) at $95 retail in 2009.  (Normal paperback price was $35. If there was a LOTR in this style i would have been very tempted. Would you be?)
