Old and heavy books always seem like a mysterious and infinite well of wisdom and imagination for me. That moment, when you pick up an old book from a shelf and wipe away thick layer of dust from it‘s cover, is full of magic. However, book is so much more than pages full of words.

I've always thought that it would be wonderful to give old books a second life. Some artists make it happen by turning old books, dictionaries and encyclopedias into admirable sculptures.

I found a few amazing examples of book sculptures, so I invite you to share the pictures of amazing book art as well. Don‘t forget to vote for your favorites too.

Lovely. A side note: Lewis Carroll never refers to The Mad Hatter, only The Hatter. The chapter is 'A Mad Tea-Party' & the 2 ideas elided.
