Lost Keys by ThoughtCriminal31 Lost Keys by ThoughtCriminal31
From my AS Project 'Time. Lost. Freedom.'

I took an old book and destroyed it. Here, right at the back is where I cut a hole through the pages and hid some keys, as some sort of resolution to the rest of the book. This is just a view of the one page, rather than here: [link] both pages are shown.

I am quite proud of my book, and hopefully I'll make time to put some other photographs of it up.

I pity the book used to make this...but a book is by far the best place to hide things in. By FAR

I am scouting for work for my Lost Book Club and Museum:iconlostbooks:, and I think this piece would be a good fit. I wonder if you would grant us permission to post it in the club gallery for the amazement and edification of our small but growing audience. I thank you for considering this request.

Best Regards,
James Koehnline

Awsome!
Although this almost hurts to see an old book cut up like this - can't help it, I am such a book-lover - I must admit this is a beautiful artwork!
Really special how you did that! Love it, and can't help that either :lol: :heart:

I found your artwork because it was featured in :iconword-worth-1000-pics:

It was an old book, then the whiter bit is a photocopy of the cover of yet another book, burnt.

omg! Lovely. The idea is great love the old book and the keys. Really cool is the first page which is rather burnt. The only thing that I don't like is that you destroyed the book :( but you created something which is worthy

ThoughtCriminal31 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2007
Nah I know I did have slight guilt about destroying the book.. but it was in a pile of books that were going to be given away anyway.. so I thought.. why not?

The book itself isn' totally destroyed though, the cover is totally intact etc.

We also have tons of books :) and nobody reads them (well me for example) so I could also destroy one book from inside :)
