Where are all the people asking if you destroyed a library book?

Anywhere. Oh well. People be hypocrites.

This is really nice work and very detailed. As one who loves books a scene coming form a book is just awesomesauce. Please do keep up the incredible work. Alao please ignore the first part. That was more directed towards any possible commenters. You are awesome.

Thank you for your words XschantellexX, you are very kind :)

The books I use for my Sculptures are recycled, they are useless and I buy them before they are destroyed.

This is good to know, but I had suspected as much. The only reason I directed it that way is on similar works using recycled books people seriously asked the artists about destroying public property.

Once upon a time, there was a little house that lived in a book. Yeah, it wasn't very high among the real estate. They could only get sunlight whenever the book was opened, which wasn't often because people can just read online now.
