Pleased to announce our newest book arts acquisition: 

The Deep by Kevin Steele.


From the artist’s website:  

"The Deep is a tribute to maritime folklore and tradition developed over centuries of nautical exploration. The ocean, which remains immense and mysterious in our own time, was all the more enchanting and terrifying to sailors in an era when being at sea meant a profound isolation from civilization in oft uncharted waters and dangerous passages.


The Deep is a circular accordion pop-up book which unfolds to an oversized eight-point compass rose. The compass, arguably the sailor’s most valuable instrument, not only enables accurate navigation but brings good luck, ensuring safe passage home and protecting against a watery end in the Deep.”

Visit the artist’s website.

If you want to take a look in person just stop by the desk in our reading room and our librarians will  probably offer a bit of assistance.  I particularly recommend getting a group together and stopping by since it is a great one to gather around. 

This may be the coolest thing I have ever seen!
