Judith Hoffman created this book art. I love it just because it's so fun and silly and I actually laughed when I saw it. I think that that may have been the point; to strike an emotion in the viewer. She probably knew that most people would find it at least a little bit amusing.

She said "The content of my books comes from my dreams, personal mythology and stream-of-conciousness writing. I also draw inspiration from illuminated manuscripts and the components of modern books; the tables of contents, the page numbers and the chapter headings are all wonderful to me."

When looking at this piece, it is easy to see that she was keeping in mind that 'mythological' or dreamlike idea.

  1. Good example. I laughed when I saw this too! I wonder what's going on inside the book...
