Shanna Leino: "I love the structural challenge of building a book to fit the content. The words and stories can come from a country song scrap heap, but they primarily come from experiences roving around the South with my friend Lindsay, to Kentucky, Tennessee, the Carolinas, Mississippi, and over to Texas. Heat and sparks and thunder, finding another good night's sleep in the car, it all gives you a rash, but you can't get enough."

Harrisville, New Hampshire: Shanna Leino, 2003. One-of-a-kind.

4 x 6 x 1.5"; 26 pages. Silk pages with ink and stitched drawings. Painted wooden covers. Signed and dated by the artist.

Shanna Leino: "I kept journals and the journals kept falling apart. I needed a book that could withstand the enduro of its use. That need unleashed a curiosity into the art of the book and the historical structures. The curiosity of 'how can I make a sturdy book, built for surviving heavy use' led me to exploration of the art of the book, artists’ books, and historical methods of putting books together."

$1,165 (On Exhibition)
