Viewers of Good as Gold by Donald Lipski might consider the abstrusity of books drilled with holes placed on an eight foot tall round steel form. Upon further observation however, the commanding work might be interpreted as a literal representation of the portal through which readers travel to alternate worlds via books. Most of the books included in the work were sourced from a Bridgehampton, New York Book Barn, but Lipski incorporated withdrawn items from The Kansas City Public Library’s collection as well. Each book was selected based on size, color, and subject matter.
