BIJOUX DE BIBLIOTEQUE

Today we are living in a society where everything becomes easy to get, to change, to throw away, objects are loosing their value, we don’t really feel concerned by them. Transmission of information is something fragile. The idea is to get people involved in what they are doing, reading, be conscious of the preciosity of what they have in their hands, experiment it, to understand what is behind, its entire message. How to enter in the world of books in a different way. How to open the book and how to read the information in it, as we can consider the book as a close entity and totality.

These Bijoux de bibliothèque put attention on books, give them value, preciosity. How can we access to the quintessence, the book’s soul. How do we consider the book nowadays comparing to the digital media. What books can still bring that digital cannot (preciosity, manipulation, history, touch, secret, personality..).
