Straightjacket by Joseph DeCamillis

Joseph DeCamillis is a self described life-long reader. He was on the creative writing path when the art bug got him and he’s never looked back. For the last 10 plus years his focus has been on book inspired art. One jewel is his autobiographical Straightjacket, an assemblage of hardback book covers and various items of deconstructed clothing.

DeCamillis had two criteria for choosing the books used:

1.  Reading the book had a major impact on his personality at some stage of his life
2.  Title and/or subject of the book connects to some piece of his past.

His tag line for the piece is “What You Read is What You Get”

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.
— Rainer Maria Rilke (via mycolorbook)

It’s a world where firemen start fires rather than stop them. It’s a world where books are banned(after all, they hold bad ideas). It’s a world where people do not spend time alone, or take pleasure in the outdoors. Most importantly, it’s a world where people do not think independently and the burning point of paper is 451 degrees.
