ALYSSA NOELLE RASMUSSEN (July)
Artist Bio: I spend a lot of time turning pages of books. After building a respectable personal library while both working in libraries and studying, my appreciation of books expanded and I wanted to see more of their beauty more of the time. Some books are beautiful because of what is inside of them, and others are beautiful inside and out. The hues of older book pages, the texture and linen-like quality of the paper, the colorful illustrations of science encyclopedias and children's books - I love them all. With care, I take books off my shelves to make them a centerpiece of the room.
