My Book A Lever (Restrukturanta La Mezepoka Libro)

This book was a prizewinner in the Bodleian Libraries competition ‘Reconstructing The Medieval Book’ and is now held in the rare books collection at the Bodleian, Oxford

It is an octavo folded sheet made from recycled junk mail which has been primed with white paint. The main text is the competition brief translated into Esperanto and the red text is a synopsis of the construction process and concept. The book is hand written and painted and includes a poem by Mike Sims.
