THE SECRET LIFE OF BOOKS IS A STORY COMPOSED OF FLAT AND 3-DIMENSIONAL ART WORK ABOUT A BOY WHO FALLS INTO A BOOK. IT WAS CREATED TO INSPIRE A DESIRE TO READ—IMMERSE ONESELF IN A STORY AND EXPERIENCE IT WITH ONE'S OWN IMAGINATION. THIS IN RESPONSE TO AN OVERWHELMING SEA OF FACES ILLUMINATED BY TINY PHONE SCREENS. I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST PHONES. I HAVE ONE AND I LOVE IT EVEN. HOWEVER, IF YOU FIND YOURSELF UNABLE TO LIVE WITHOUT THAT CONSTANT PHONE SCREEN FLICKERING OVER YOUR FACE, YOU SHOULD SNAP OUT OF IT COME AND SEE MY EXHIBIT—WHENEVER IT IS ON EXHIBIT—OR/AND READ A GOOD BOOK. ONE THAT’S PRINTED ON PAPER.
