Reflections, a hand-carved book by Virginia Beach artist Maggie Kerrigan (altered book art)

This piece was in response to an exhibition called Reflections. I scoured the thrift stores for appropriate titles, and settled on this memoir by former President George W. Bush.

I enjoyed playing with the reflected letters, changing the style so that they are recessed, a nod to the idea of how memories fade over time.

This book won second place in the exhibition at The Artists Gallery.

I sent photos of it along with a letter to President Bush, and he answered me with a heartfelt letter, mentioning his own artistic exploration with painting.
