By Daniel Lai book art. I love how the creator of this piece has folded paper over itself then folded the book backwards to create a sort of broccili looking shape.

Altered Book Art by Brian Dettmer. The book lover in me is horrified at altering these books but the art is amazing!

In Book Arts, I learned just how difficult it is to cut into a book and have the image you want pop out correctly. I think what makes this stand out a bit is the pen shading. The goal of the shading wasn't to block the words of the book, but to enhance the overall image.      OMG SO COOL

Book diorama - this is amazing! Would be neat to match the diorama to the story inside the book.

Thinker under Tree on Claybord Original Sculpture by Kenjio, $250.00.... I could totally do this!

These could also be used as pedestals... if I reinforce them in some way.

From a repurposed book. I have such trouble destroying or tossing books; not sure I could do the crafts in this book, "The Repurposed Library: 33 Craft Projects that Give Old Books New Life" Would like to see the book, at least.

"Book art is a really bittersweet medium for me. I hate to see a book destroyed, on the other hand, the product of that destruction can be spectacular. ALSO - I miss the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and Coffee Gallery @ Open Book.
