On the other hand, Guy Laramée uses books as if they were simply blocks of wood or stone and not anything readable at all, and yet his sculptures delight me, too. He doesn’t fold paper, or build up shapes from pages, and there’s no text visible
Having gone on a search for book art, I kept finding more and more cool stuff, so I have one more installment for you, coming next week. Stay tuned! In the meantime, whether or not you love your Kindle or e-reader, take a moment to consider the magic of physical books as objects. Perhaps it’s mere nostalgia, but it’s hard not to love the beauty of printed words bound together on paper.
