Rhea Pappas is a photographer and bookmaker with something eclectic going on. Her book, Zip. Fish. Swim, shows photo after photo of lovely little live fish in ziplock bags. Air bubbles and flexible fins catch your eye just as much as the sparkly fish colors and funky fish shapes contained in the perfectly sealed baggies. It’s just one of those books that catches you off guard with its concept and creativity. And that’s precisely why it’s our Book of the Week.
Your book has taken Blurb by storm, Rhea. We’ve all looked at the preview and some have even used the term “favorite” to describe it. Congratulations. We can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
Is it just me, or do plastic bags with fish in them remind you of carnivals where you’d try to win a goldfish by getting a ping-pong ball into a little fishbowl? Come on, amuse us with your fish stories in the comments section below. Perhaps it’ll inspire your very own fish book.
