Every Book Ever

For her project 'Every Book Ever' artist Mary Alyssa Block recreated her personal library of books by meticulously painting each cover onto scrap pieces of wood. Over seventy volumes were produced, not all of which are pictured here. Taking a cue from Claes Oldenberg, she believes that “art should be literally made out of the ordinary world…its objects our ordinary objects…the reality of art will replace reality.”
