From the artist’s statement:

“This project came out of a need to recharge and reconnect with some old, worn books. I rediscovered a few underlined passages that got my wheels spinning, and the first few illustrations came out of that.

“The words are kind of a springboard for a design that incorporates and interacts with the text and hopefully add up to something that engages the mind as much as the eye.

It’s a call to action to pick up a great book. And the inspiration to slow down for a bit, I hope, to enjoy the luxury of thinking about something with no practical aim. “
