One-of-a-kind rebinding of Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter.
Tuttle creates one-of-a-kind works of art that merge the written word with fine leather, paper, paint, wood and veneer. These original book bindings have been featured in a PBS documentary on the Chicago Art beat. Tuttle describes his work as follows: “I make literary artifacts. They are designed to pull books down off the shelf and display them in the salon, gallery or home [...] I seek to find a perspective that shouts out a piece of the essence of the literary work. I try to put myself in the author's or character's mind to say something about the time it was written in; the attitude that is explored and expressed; the magic that makes it a work of art."
