Description
As the way we interact with books has been changing in the age of digital media, artists too have been exploring the physical nature of books—their structure, their paper, and their art as well as their contents—and inventing works that use discarded books as materials. From Su Blackwell's whimsical, fairy tale–inspired pop-up landscapes to the carved book stack sculptures of Kylie Stillman, and an intricate tableau of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde constructed from Ian Rankin's Hide and Seek by the artist who calls herself Anonymous, the book presents scores of remarkable sculptures and discusses the artists' intentions and techniques, and is itself bound with an exposed spine.

"Books take on a whole new life in Laura Heyenga's anthology of groundbreaking artists who've stitched, sliced, cut and carved bound literature to create anything from an intricate chess set to a huge area rug to a literary jewelry collection. In fact, the real joy of this book comes from discovering how each individual starts with the same item and yet ends up with vastly different works of art."—Oprah.com
