Lorenzo Perrone, of Florence, Italy has been engaged with the process of creating white book objects for the past 7 years. His works are created by a initially stripping down the selected book and thus removing all content. Using materials such as metal, glue, chalk and white paint he rebuilds the book into an object. A white object without title, without author, without any words whatsoever. Yet the primary form, the book itself, remains intact. These works become in a sense, a blank page, existing in the world as iconic objects, perhaps waiting for completion.

  1. Very artistic. Though it’s simple, it brings out a personality of the artist. It could be that he loves to read.
