Pleased to announce our newest book arts acquisition:
The Deep by Kevin Steele.
"The Deep is a tribute to maritime folklore and tradition developed over centuries of nautical exploration… [It] is a circular accordion pop-up book which unfolds to an oversized eight-point compass rose. The compass, arguably the sailor’s most valuable instrument, not only enables accurate navigation but brings good luck, ensuring safe passage home and protecting against a watery end in the Deep.”
Visit the artist’s website, for many more beautiful views of this work and additional description!
If you want to take a look in person just stop by the desk in our reading room and our librarians will probably offer a bit of assistance. I particularly recommend getting a group together and stopping by since it is a great one to gather around.
