I have presented two ‘books’:
Firstly, a book made from the Conservative Party manifesto: pulped up and re-inserted into the book sleeve. This book was bought off e-bay, made from an ex public library book… from a library shut down as a consequence of public sector cuts via the Conservative government. The book is unopenable, stuck together via the paper pulp as it dried against the book sleeve.
The second is ‘readable’ or at least, openable, book, made from Fredrich Von Hayek’s ‘Constitution of Liberty’ pulped, made into paper, combined with gold leaf and glued back into the original cover. The paper pulp suggests the ‘real’ economic fall-out of the books proposed free market proposals.
