Bringing Classic Books to Life

books-Terry-Border6The Taming of the Shrew – William Shakespeare

Terry Border‘s artwork and humorous experiences have been noticed and  featured in international magazines, ranging from the USA to Russia and China. We have already featured his series called Bent Objects, where everyday objects came to life via the metal wires. This time with his series Wiry Limbs, Paper Backs  he breathes new life into classic paperbacks. The series focuses on the message of each book for inspiration for the pose it takes on.
