UNBOUND winners 2017

First, a huge apology for the delay getting this news out to you – it’s been a busy season here in volunteer-land! Now [drumroll, please] we’re pleased to announce the winners in our 2017 UNBOUND Book Art & Craft Contest!

In the Kids’ division (ages 0-12), Lily A.’s dramatic “Story Shark” captured first place, wowing the judges with its dynamic 3D display of swimming fish and shiny teeth.

In second place, Charlotte P.’s “The Dollhouse with People” transformed a fashion photography book into a fold-out dollhouse complete with windows you can peek through and a working front door. Definitely check out the additional photos on our Pinterest board to get the full effect of this one (and more photos of all the winners plus a couple honorable mentions).

In third place, Stella J.’s “Seasons” turned a book about a pond into a series of collages about the seasons, including a very cute squirrel on the Fall page.

Last but not least, in third place, Tricia Larsen turned a book about San Francisco’s history and architecture into a towering structure reminiscent of Sutro Tower and the Transamerica Pyramid.
