Part of a series of crystallized books and magazines, this particular title was selected for its conceptual ties and aesthetic cover. The books in the series, all frozen with heavy crystal growth, have become artifacts or geologic specimens injected with the history of time, use, and nostalgia.
Please note that these books tend to “mature” somewhat: over time the crystals become more opaque. The photos you see here may not match the book over time. Also, the crystals do shed in small amounts as handled. The rate of change can be slowed in a controlled environment free from direct sunlight and high heat and humidity.
