This sculpture has been created using a first edition 1875 book: Mark Twain’s Sketches New and Old. Of course I would never sculpt a first edition Mark Twain unless the book was already severely damaged. I have giving the once useless book a new life. Sculpture is created with the actual book and illustrations. Each page is cut by hand and placed by hand.
