This series of new book works is based on a set of the American Educator Encyclopedia which was first published in 1919 and discontinued in 1977. This ten volume set of encyclopedias was used by Nanette’s partner in his youth. In the late 90s Nanette turned the books into art objects, painting them pure white. After exhibiting them a few times she put them outside in the garden where they were left for several decades. At some point it was decided that the books had reached an aesthetically pleasing degree of decay, needed rescue, and were brought indoors. The books were documented in 2023 to create this conceptual body of work.
