A Very Bookish Sculpture

Today, I went to the Riverwalk Fine Art Fair with my grandma. It’s a big event my city holds downtown every fall, with around 180 different artists from all around the US in a variety of both 2D and 3D mediums. There are things to see, things to buy (if you actually have money lol), and some really friendly artists to talk with.

One of this year’s highlights for me, though, was this one particular sculpture by Thomas Yano. It cost more money than I could afford (which is not surprising), but it was so beautiful and so wonderfully bookish, I thought y’all might like to see it. Without further ado, a few pictures:

Things like this make me really look forward to the day when I’m a full-time professional with the money to actually patronize artists, because this is the sort of thing that a) I would love to support, and b) I would love to have in my house/apartment! Again, the artist is Thomas Yano. I haven’t been able to find a website for him, but if I come across one, I will update this post accordingly!

That’s all I really have for today; this was just a quick fill-in post while I get more reading done and reviews written for this week. Do you all love this sculpture as much as I did? 😍😍😍

(Also, how has your reading been this week? Anything good? Let me know!)

Much love,

Kathryn (“K-Specks”)

    I love the detail on it and all the books popping out of the head. Pretty cool!
