  1. Hi, I’m an art student at Nova Southeastern and taking a book art class. I’m really intrigued with the book on this post (with the portrait and pages suspended by string?) but I can’t seem to find any information about it. Who is the artists that made it and of what materials was it made from? Thanks!
