Art Made from Books

Altered, Sculpted, Carved, Transformed


This volume collects a jaw-dropping assortment of art made from books—by cutting, painting, sawing, laminating, balancing or stacking. The definitive guide to the emerging art form, Art Made from Books showcases groundbreaking work by today's best practitioners, from Su Blackwell’s whimsical pop-up landscapes to the stacked-book sculptures of Jonathan Callan. A foreword by pioneering artist Brian Dettmer and an introduction by design critic Alyson Kuhn complete the collection, presented in an unusual, tactile package with exposed spine.
