Books of Art created by Isaac Salazar
Artist Guy Laramee is a master at creating zen-like landscapes of mountains, caves, and valleys– he does an amazing job sculpting these pristine works out of books.

Ok, this book rack is amazing. The book rests on a small wooden plate, and the waxed cotton string it hangs from also serves as a bookmark. Awesome!
