    Brilliantly created by UK-based artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson, these beautiful collages of book carvings from old encyclopedias and rare books bring us into another world. All the images in the final artwork are from the original pages of the book. He goes through page by page to look for images and does not add in anything in. He turns books from being a tool to learn from the world into a means to gains insight about oneself.

He uses fashion magazines, and found google images as the starting point for his work… and then laser cuts, and craft-punches them into zillions of tiny fragments. He then meticulously pins each bit onto foam board, creating stunningly beautiful, and insanely elaborate mandalas.
