the paper period

The Paper Period (Japanese: kami kikan) is a term used to define the works produced by Canadian artist Brenda Petays between 2008 and 2015 when she essentially abused books by unbinding and re-binding the pages. These “literary works” are now some of her most popular works, although she had difficulty selling them at the time.
