'Evolve' Book

As part of the altered book collection in the Toronto Reference Library, I had the opportunity to take an existing book and create my own work. Inspired by a visit to the anatomy Mutter Museum in Philadelphia, and the collection of anatomical pop-up books in the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library in Toronto, I created a paper-and-acetate book of a female figure that has several layers of biological 'armor' that is slowly stripped with each turned page. The book can be checked out of the Toronto Reference Library in their Special Collection Artist Book room!
