his recent works: Book Stories:
There are some traditions in dealing with a book as an
object of art. After all a book is an object of cultural
value of the highest rank: whoever uses it deals with
it, mus be a match for it.
Francois du Plessis “Book Stories” can definitely
be judged as succesfull realisation.
Not so much because he consequently puts high value on
the aesthetic perception on shape and colour, on material
and surface, but simply because he acknowledges the book
as an individual body from which he occasionally creates
a totally self-contained new work of art.
