Some of you may have already seen the photographs of conceptual artist Mickey Smith. She has been documenting the types of bound scholarly journals and periodicals that public libraries are now replacing with digital versions. It's an interesting project and I think her Nature pairing, released today over at 20 x 200, is especially dynamic considering she photographs the books just as the last reader or librarian left them on the shelf.
There are two prints available here -- Collocation No. 14 (NATURE) Left Panel and Collocation No. 14 (NATURE) Right Panel -- but the artist's suggestion is to display them as one, as shown above. Depending on size, these limited editions range from $20 to $200 each. Learn more about Mickey's other work here.
