Rosenberg holds a black bear jawbone wrapped in strips of a map by book artist Steven Daiber. ($300)

“It’s taking the book onto a different plane,” she says “out of the codex, out of the binding and creating a narrative around it.”

“The book is a three-dimensional object, so it’s basically taking it to the next step,” says Rosenberg.
