The Forever Book
Handmade unique edition, 2021
Author, Designer, and Binder.
The Forever Book is a conceptual project, handmade as a unique edition from ten materials, each lasting an increasing amount of time, from the highly decomposable toilet paper to materials that do not decompose and will effectively will last an indeterminate amount of time—forever.
There is, and should only be, 1 copy of this book. It is made with archival paper and binding materials that under storage conditions are guaranteed to last for at least 100 years, but will likely last longer. The concept, and irony, of The Forever Book is that some elements will last much longer than others, ensuring that the book as a whole will not last forever, but elements of it will survive prolonged decomposition.
