I bought this behemoth of a dictionary at Goodwill thinking I would use it for art. Now that I have it home though, I don’t think I can do it. It’s in rough shape, its binding is held together with tape, it has issues, but I can’t bring myself to dismantle it.
It’s 8 years shy of being an antique, has 2,808 pages and is 5 inches thick.
I doubt anything I could make with it would be worthy of it.
How many different fingers passed over the pages searching out words? My imagination runs wild pondering it’s past.
Would further destroying it in the name of art be a crime? For now and perhaps forever it sits on my shelf untouched.
