No Way to Treat a Book?

I grew up in a family that treated its books with respect. We children were admonished not to leave books open, face down lest the spines break. We looked with horror at people who folded the corners of pages to mark their place, or worse, licked their thumbs so their skin would stick to the paper when they turned the page. Still, I admit to being intrigued by the display of books that were cut-up, paper-engineered and refashioned into art object that was in the Dodd Center Reading Room a few years ago. And I am completely taken with this video from the New Zealand Book Council in which scissors have been taken to books. You will want to watch it more than once. Posted by Suzy
