Post The Most Beautiful Examples Of Book Sculptures
Heavy, old books always seem like a mysterious and infinite well of wisdom and imagination for me. That moment, when you pick up a vintage book from a shelf and wipe away a thick layer of dust from its cover, is full of magic. However, the book is so much more than pages full of words it is also a true paper artwork.
I've always thought that it would be wonderful to give old books a second life and turn them into unique artworks. Some artists make it happen by turning old books, dictionaries, and encyclopedias into beautiful 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.
