This is the second issue of my zine Book Art.

Each double page spread is comprised of two pages from the book, complimentary in colour, but each page of the zine also stands as an artwork of it’s own. The artworks are from my sketchbooks and a whole book I made called "The Sic Idea", created in my old music textbook.

Materials used in the creation of this artwork include: card stock, ink, printer, staples, book, acrylic paint, shellac, artline pen, glue, comics, wire, leaf, rice paper, and many more, too many to list.

The Book Art zine is printed on a lazer printer on 100 gsm paper for durability and clartity. Images are full colour. Zine is A5 in size and has sixteen pages of original artworks.

Review for the first volume of "Book Art" by Estelle Tang on the Story To blog:

"There’s something about the unsullied propriety of a book that makes me feel both at ease and on edge. Clearly, effort and care go into the creation of a book in truckloads. But the more difficult or deified the contents, the more I wonder what it would be like to tear it up and shake it around. Emma Stronach’s Book Art zine is a gorgeous reminder of this feeling. Emma has taken the pages of her old music textbook and ripped them up, creating sixteen pages of collage and catastrophe that are sometimes delicate and sometimes irreverent. In this way, a book that used to convey information in one way has been transformed with browns, blues, greens, shellac, pen and glue into something totally different and delightful. Book Art comes in two sizes – A6 ($5) and A5 ($10). I have the little version, but the larger version is printed on cardstock and can be taken apart as individual artworks."
