Higher gauge wire is easier to manipulate, but my affinity for 16 gauge steel remains strong.

As I fiddled with the multiple squares a book shape emerged.

At home I played some more.

Cutting, waxing, inserting and sizing the paper is quite time consuming.

For now, Angel is enjoying her temporary library of a Paris travel guide, a David Copperfield review, a coloring book and a journal.

You may see some other bookish designs as I rip up books and work with scraps.
