This book was created from the waste product of building some large set pieces for Path of the Forgotten. Even though all the books I used were donated especially to be destroyed or rescued from the local recycling center, I still cringed a little drilling and cutting them. The pilot hole created by the large drill bits made the pieces look like large, flat beads. I gathered them, strung them up on linen bookbinding thread using the covers as punctuation along the necklace.

One of a kind book
