A pilot holds his stewardess tight as they watch the skies. The book used is “Crowded Skies”, published in the 60’s. English artist Jodi Harvey-Brown has always loved books. Jodi creates sophisticated and complex paper sculptures that literally lie in the literature according to its pages – Huckleberry Finn, Tom Sawyer, Harry Potter. “Books pull you into a new world, while art lets you see it. It made sense to me that these two mediums should come together. The books that we love to read should be made to come to life”.
