New Book Carvings From Guy Laramée

December 24, 2013

Throughout the last year we have posted many different artists who have been using old books as a medium for their art. By carving, slicing, gluing, stacking, and collaging the pages and spines of books, the artists have been creating incredible works of art from otherwise discarded and forgotten about printed materials. One of these artists, Guy Laramée, recently took a 24-volume set of the now discontinued Encyclopedia Britannica and transformed it into a mountain range. The piece, titled Adieu, is inspired by the announcement that the company would cease printing of the book sets. (via)
