In this time of instant messages, tweets and texts, you have to wonder if anyone actually knows what a book is anymore, let alone actually read one. The answer, of course, is yes. In fact a growing number of artists are putting their works in book format so people can actually hold and touch a work of art. One of those artists is Britt Stadig of Nashville, TN who, as Tennessee Crossroads found out, has one advantage over those other artists. Watch this and more episode segments of Nashville Public Television's Tennessee Crossroads.
Britt enlisted twenty of Tennessee's top artists to contribute to a collaborative book of art work to be unveiled at the Nashville Public Library in 2014.
