    Carved Book Landscapes by Guy Laramee #bookart

  • Janet Jay

    Real (not photoshopped, kiddo) For the better part of three decades multidisciplinary artist Guy Laramee has worked as a stage writer, director, composer, a fabricator of musical instruments, a singer, sculptor, painter and writer. Among his sculptural works are two incredible series of carved book landscapes and structures entitled Biblios and The Great Wall, where the dense pages of old books are excavated to reveal serene mountains, plateaus, and ancient structures.

I'm always torn when I see these. On the one hand they are amazing, on the other hand I can't condone book abuse......

#26. I can't get enough of this piece titled "Necklace" by Melbourne-native artist Kate Tucker, part of the 2010 "Counterfeit Sanctity" exhibition. I love the textures and collagey-ness and how the tags pull it all together.

I would love to find someone to make me some book carvings out of old encyclopedias = GREAT DECOR!

Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. He currently lives and works in Atlanta, GA.
