The Traveling Bookbox Show
An unusual touring exhibition of book-themed shadowboxes. Many are now being housed at The Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in California.
“I cannot remember the books I've read any more than the meals I have eaten; even so, they have made me.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
by Nell Stroud
Nell was the first person I knew personally who wrote a book, about the reality of life in a circus troupe. The only person I know who ran away to join the circus, and then, of course, she created her very own circus in 2000 - Giffords - a magical village green circus that tours England through the summer months. I've caught almost every season, despite living in California.
