Who said that books are only for reading? Try to read this book, with its words cut out. Now who would spend so much time to cut words out of some book, and, more importantly, for what purpose? Book sculpture is the answer.
We can see in the following how the artists create 3D figures, digging into the ‘soul’ of the book to create complex forms, either it is a book gun, a fairy tale story, or some anatomical interior of a book.
Do you agree with this form of book mutilation?
