so i was assigned to make three scupltures for school, and like any good student, i was putting it off 'till the last minute. then i saw the challenge, and thought i could totally do both! i got the book at a garage sale for 25 cents, so this is what i came up with (cut out pages for sea/garden, and used them in origami) im not sure what the font is, i think it's times new roman. i kinda made the origami up as i went/ remembered the ones i used to do as a kid, anyway, here it is  Cheesy

Clever - I like this - I liked that you used the book as the base- I really like the houses the best.  And the boat.  And the flowers.  And . . . all of it.  Interesting and unique.  I recently purchased some books at the Goodwill store, hardbacks, for $.50 each - Originally I was going to cut them up for the artwork and typed pages, but now I cannot bear to - Maybe if I keep them another couple of months, I will finally "dive" in.  Anyway - I like your work.  Cool

This is just... really beautiful.  It has a sense of simplicity while also being really intricate.  I'm not sure how to express it, but I really like this piece!
