One of our favourite design/art books at creativelab, is A Humument by the great British designer and artist, Tom Phillips.  Finding an obscure Victorian novel in a London junk shop in the late 60’s, Phillips set about altering every page making the book into a hand-crafted, post-modern art object. It’s been through several editions over the years (including an iPad app) with new pages being added all the time. The project is finishing with a new, 50th anniversary special edition featuring a clamshell box and a limited print. We’ll be raiding the piggy bank for this.
