Why not take ART as the best language that does not need translation. Art speaks every tongue. Art makes itself understandable without words, attracts mind and soul by emotion and thought. Art knows no boundaries, art would be the best messenger.

This artist book object works like a tiny art library, a bookshelf, a tiny cupboard, a container for miniature books, cut and folded from my own original artworks.

Books can burn but no book tradition can be burnt!
