Like some crazy example of baroque architecture, the rich complexity of reality easily distracts us from the amazing group of processes that result in its construction. How My Body Makes The World begins with the idea that each of us constructs our own unique reality by making sense of the things that make it up. This artist book describes the human body’s ability to build representations of sensory stimuli, which it then uses to fabricate sensations, objects of perception and thoughts that comprise the individual’s experience of the world. How My Body Makes The World offers a light-hearted, lyrical approach to a subject some may think of as being difficult and dry. This book combines prose and metered verse with whimsical illustrations to encourage readers’ openness to new ways of thinking about the world. Unique soft-sided leather binding, oversized manuscript. Almost every page includes large illustrations, charts and tables to elucidate its hand-lettered text.

Dr. Pliny graduated with honors from The Cooper Union, NYC. At different times of his life Dr. Pliny has Dr. Bob Pliny has been making art his entire life. Most of the time the artwork produced by Dr. Bob Pliny features pen and ink and fine brush detail applied on layers of loosely applied acrylic paint. Gold leaf is sometimes used as well. The substrate is either paper or wood. Both surfaces are smooth enough to draw on that I'm able to use dip pens with India ink or liquid acrylic.
