40  BOOKS ARE MAGIC! (lots of pictures) in CHALLENGE 29 ENTRIES by selkie on: July 05, 2008 05:32:17 AM
I was one of those kids who preferred to live in books...
Most of my childhood heroes were the heroines in my favorite books.



Although I'm sure I'll remember tons of other books that were influential, I've focused primarily on three...
Anne of Green Gables
Laura Ingalls Wilder
 & Raggedy Ann.

To balance the visionary/social justice/Utopian part of my Aquarian spirit, I devoured books about the Holocaust. There's no ready explanation for this, my family is not of Jewish descent (at least not that we know of - there is always a possibility...) I would bring home books with heart wrenching pictures from the camps and sit there for hours, sobbing. My mom kept asking me why I brought them home if they upset me so much. I didn't have an answer then and I still don't - the only thing that occurs to me is that perhaps I was looking for someone...

I decided to pay homage to books by altering a mid 1980's Encyclopedia Britannica. I've already used some of the set for a "book shelf" in my office - there are a lot of books in a complete set. So I grabbed one without checking to see which volume it was.


I started as you would with any altered book, ripping out pages...

I decided to use maps of the places where LM Montgomery, Laura Ingalls Wilder and Johnny Gruelle were from/where there stories were about, for section dividers and headed to AAA with a LONG list.







Every storybook needs a once upon a time...








And then my project took a turn of its own.

I realized that I had grabbed the H volume and decided to look up Holocaust for that section of my book. I flipped through, found the 5 pages about Hitler, got to Hob and the next entry was Holocene Epoch. After flipping back and forth for quite some time and realizing that none of the pages were stuck together and I really hadn't missed it, it just wasn't there...
I decided - metaphorically speaking - to put the Holocaust back into the Encyclopedia - at least mine...

When my husband got home - I told him about it not being there, he looked at me and said "So you're putting it back in?" It was really more of a statement - he knows me quite well.









I wanted to show my frustration with Hitler, but I realized that taking him out would symbolically show forgetting him and that would be as dangerous as taking out and forgetting the Holocaust - It was difficult to leave it in, but I settled upon the duct tape as a way of saying NO MORE...





I also decided to put in a lot more than five pages - so I'm guessing this will be a work in progress for quite some time - there are a lot of pages in an encyclopedia.
