This sculptural work pairs text from the archetypal 1813 romance novel by Jane Austen with images cut from the covers of its modern counterparts. This piece was created from a minimum quantity of recycled and already-purchased materials and with limited use of electricity for Sustainable Book and Paper Arts, a 2011 exhibition curated by Shawn Sheehy and Melissa Jay Craig.
