Literary Bowling Balls
Eddy Sykes' Trophy Series is Comprised of Faux Books

The Trophy Series is an art project that revolves around used bowling balls that have been converted into faux books. By carving this particular sports equipment into literary tomes, these bowling balls have been given a timeless appeal and existence.

Created by Los Angeles-based artist Eddy Sykes, the Trophy Series explores the ideas behind both the trophy and information. Bowling balls are often considered trophies once they have been retired from the game. Sykes specifically prefers working with ones that are over 30 years old. By turning them into tomes of information, the Trophy Series extends their relevance beyond the bowling aisle.

As a nod to their past purpose, each piece in the Trophy Series keeps the finger holes intact. This touch is both nostalgic and quirky.
