Book as an Object
Look behind our Main Desk this month to find a beautiful display of book sculptures. The sculptures were created by Millburn teens taught by local artist Claudia Sohr; the display was created with the assistance of Penguin Books Art Director Deborah Kaplan (both from Maplewood). The display was at [words] Bookstore in March, will be at the library through May 1, and will return to [words] in May.
Claudia notes: “If any book lover passes a grumbling word to you about defacing precious novels you can tell them that many of the books were rescued from garbage heaps, garages, basements and under beds of students of mine. Books lost in time….They have been recycled and honored in a most clever way.” None of the books are from our Library.
