In todays’ article, Selling a Book by its Cover, the author mentioned how forecasters say there is a trend towards objectifying objects: ‘The more that objects become replaced by digital virtual counterparts — from records and books to photo albums and even cash — watch for people to fetishize the physical object. Books are being turned into decorative accessories, for example, and records into art.’  In the same article there was an artist who made trees out of books as art. People are talking about the newspaper as relic as well and I looked at the newspaper in those terms, as just paper, and made a book – sketchbook. Full circle.
