In the vibrant Asheville neighborhood of Battery Park, a somewhat violently named gallery Zapow curates a magnificent body of fantasy and pop art, and has recently added one Veronica V. Jones to their eclectic collection. She arrived just in time to participate in their latest show, “Art of the Book,” where the contributors each choose a tome to artistically illuminate.

Allison Weeks Thomas’ take on To Kill a Mockingbird is featured in ZaPow’s notice, and Veronica has illustrated the main character from Holly Black’s Tithe, while other literary works such as “The Little Prince,” “To Kill a Mockingbird,” “War and Peace” and, ur… “Fifty Shades of Grey.” In total, over fifty artisans are participating in the show, which opens this Sunday, February 8th.
