Re-purposing books into art


Old and heavy books always seem like a mysterious and infinite well of wisdom and imagination for us ... There are romances, populist fiction, male adventure and self-help ephemera that people have stopped reading, previously destined for the pulping machine, now rescued and given new life as works of art.


However, it is so much more than pages full of words.


It would be wonderful to give old books a second life. Some artists make it happen by turning old tomes, dictionaries and encyclopedias into admirable sculptures.

We found a few amazing examples of that kind sculptures.
