The Book of BonBons by Jan Dove

$1,000.00 - Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.
The Book of BonBons came about as a result if my fascination with geometric puzzles. It is a reminder of the need for play and curiosity, which are two well-tested paths to creativity. The images used in the components of this book are taken from my photography and printmaking. Each component is a physical puzzle or conundrum. The viewer is invited to play with them, feel their weight, hear their sounds, discover how they work.
