Book Art

I think this print by Alanna Cavanagh is really cool. I mean, who doesn't love a good Penguin classic? And in this world of Kindles and audio books, I sort of like a reminder of how good it feels to hold a real book in your hands.

I'm thinking about using this technique to blow up the cover of an old copy of Raise High the Roofbeams, Carpenters, which is one of our family's very favorite books. The cover is a great shade of goldenrod yellow (reminds me a bit of a yellow Albers square study print), and I love the quirky font Salinger always used.
