We worked closley with author Annette Libeskind Berkovits to bring her book alive In the form of a glass corset. The corset is inspired by the cover of the book. The cover of the book was designed by the world famous architect Daniel Libeskind.
The Corset Maker is inspired by the author's mother and her close friends, all women of immense courage and integrity. Rifka’s personal struggles and dilemmas go to the heart of the major ethical issues and challenges of our times.
