Book artist shows an outstanding method to display startlingly original work.

That got your attention. This is Stevie Ronnie’s Brass Book and what is exciting and ground breaking is Stevie actually got an ipad incased in a book that has fantastic content, compliments the written word that proceeds it and has whole thing bound in a traditional bookbinding and then the cherry on the top : he commissioned a very skilled furniture maker to make a chair that the reader can sit on and read the book and interact with the ipad! How amazing is that!

Because this is one of those “if no one speaks of remarkable things” things and needs to be noticed in a bigger area. This is astonishing stuff. Truly. The biggest problem with the “book artist stuff” is how can the user experience it. I hate books under glass cases and even worse white cotton gloves as if it is a scared object. Here the artist has provided a comfortable and beautiful chair so that both books could be read by two people at the same time. Whats not to like!
