Mrs Beeton's Household Management, this one published in 1908. A British classic about housekeeping, cooking and generally running a house in Victorian and later, Edwardian times. This sculpture is all about bad housekeeping, not by lack of trying to keep it nice and sturdy but purely because our abused planet has decided otherwise and who can blame her?...

Born and raised in Paris, with a publisher for a father, I have always loved books, for their content of course but also for what they look or even smell like. I am not academically trained as an artist (I am a headhunter by day) but I have also always loved making things. I moved to London in 1994 and over the last few years, I have been collecting old books (and sometimes new ones) that either look good to me or will tell a story, very often different from their original content. I try to give some of those really old or unloved books a new life and a new purpose. I have a preference for illustrated books, some of the ones we very rarely open.I love bringing the inside permanently outside, for everyone to see and enjoy. And when a book has nothing particular to say or show, apart from a good binding, I make a sculpture that will hopefully turn out appealing to most people. If not, I like them anyway...
