storybox [stawr-ee-boks, stohr-ee-boks]
1. coined and created by artist leilani pierson in 2007, for her version of a small book in sculptural form that fits in the palm of a hand. a lidded box that is altered in some way - usually with fibers and containing pages in some form that have words which relate abstractly to one another. poetic in nature. sure to cause minds to think. to wander in journeys unbeknownst to themselves. small. quaint. precious. wild. truthful. fictional. storyfull. join the journey...


storybox. no.3

sometimes i like to actually make a little book with pages to case within. and the words i still hunt for in an old book page, but rather than cutting them out, i write them down.

Love your mini book - and what a great idea to copy down the found text in your own hand! Thanks for always being so inspiring !!
