[Book in a Steel Box]

Description: Photographs of the 2005-2006 artist's book competition winner "Book in a Steel Box" created by Eric Blake. A small cloth-bound volume with graphite lines throughout is welded into a steel box. The book is visible along the spine and fore-edge through steel bars. The box does not open, and the book cannot be removed, making it an "inaccessible text." The first image is of a steel box, with a book inside of it, two bars covering the opening. Image 2, front view of the book inside a steel box. Image 3, book in a steel box laying down flat, the bars over the opening upright.
