What book would you choose to have made into a paper sculpture?

Yes, yes, books are for reading, BUT have you seen Maryland artist Jodi Harvey’s book sculptures? If you’re not sure what to get the reader in your life, might I suggest commissioning Harvey to take an edition (“first editions are a no-no”) of their favorite book and turn it into a custom paper sculpture?

For a ridiculously low fee ($60 to $400), Harvey will actually read the book in question, sketch out potential scenes, and then spend many, many hours at her kitchen table (“so I can be closer to my two kids”) handcrafting a particularly great and unique gift.

I would absolutely do this with a copy of Malcolm Lowry’s Under the Volcano.
