Make books your best friend and they will take you on an adventure every day.
Some of the artists went a bit beyond reading them and used their creative minds to transform old huge books into some of the finest pieces of art. These art forms are called book sculptures, and you can use them to beautify any corner of your house.
Nicholas Jones from Melbourne is one of the most famous book sculptors in the world. He did his Masters of Fine Arts from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, and his works have been exhibited in various international art exhibitions. His book Art made from books incredibly portrays the beauty of book sculptures. Another famous name in this field is of Brian Dettmar, he is a New York based artist and uses knives, scalpels and many other surgical tools to carve out amazing book sculptures. Although, this creative work of art ends up destroying some big books, the way the art form comes out kind of makes it up for the destruction.
This is probably one of the best ways to re-purpose the old books.
What an incredible way to re-use old books.
I wonder how many hours it would taken the artist to complete this book sculpture.
This is made by Pennsylvania-based artist Jodi Harvey Brown.
Mirrors inside this book sculpture give it the never ending appearance.
Artist Mike Stilkey puts all his creativity in this spectacular art work.
This is made by Brain Dettmer a.k.a the book surgeon.
I love the way the artist has given a vintage touch to the sculpture.
