Books as art

I had a great idea for a client last year that was centred around a sculpture made from books.

At the time I was very excited as I was hoping to commission Nicholas Jones to make the sculpture.

I'd never met Jones before but had seen many of his book based artworks.

Sadly the idea never happened.

To be honest with you I'd completely forgotten all about it.

Until today. When I stumbled on this lovely little film about Nicholas Jones.

It offers a nice insight into his arts practice and working life.

And makes Melbourne look pretty cool too.
