I follow Brian on Flickr - his work is amazing. I love books and bookmaking and the objectification there of, though I love the stories too.

I particularly love this piece as it is very organic, reminiscent of animal vertebrae almost. I also appreciate taking something that is sacred in it's original form and making it into something completely different, but sacred still. It also reminds me of a geode :)
