RED BADGE DETECTIVE AGENCY
a book art object (art object, book sculpture)
a rescued, vintage book – in this case, from the "Red Badge Detective Agency" series. which ran from the 1930's to the 1970's (the title of this book was "The Taming of Carney Wilde", published in 1954)
With all my book art objects, the painting on the cover is new and original. Often the art is completely disconnected from the theme of the book. As with varnishing the pages shut, this is part and parcel with recreating the book into something entirely new. It is no longer a book but an art object.
the pages are painted shut (in this case, with black enamel): it is now an art object, meant to sit on a coffee table or mantle or bookshelf
it is also meant to be handled – the new cover art is protected by acrylic varnish
This book art object also has artwork on the back – a sitting, grinning tiger.
“Dead men are heavier than broken hearts.”
― Raymond Chandler
“I am all that there is of the most real.”
― Agatha Christie
“Like all really nice people, you have a weakness for detective stories, and feel that there are not enough of them. So, after all that you have done for me, the least that I can do for you is to write you one.”
― A.A. Milne
A completely original gift for the art and literature lover.
This is a found book; all marks from its history are left untouched.
Packaged in a plastic sleeve for gift giving, with an explanatory card.
Everything from my store comes with an extra art surprise.
The dreaming planet is the planet of manufacture, where everything in your life consists of mass-produced gadgets, everything factory-made, which in turn makes you as replaceable as the objects. Instead why not have original art, original objects –– the starter kit for an original life.
