The Book Surgeon
Every now and then I cross paths with an artist who had refined a process so intense that it blow the cap off my skull. Check out the absolutely incredible sculpted book-work of Brian Dettmer. It may take you a few moments to orient yourself but once you do you will see one of the most implausibly crafted works of art created from existing material you have ever seen. The process is described quite simply. A book is chosen, nothing is added and only chunks of pages are removed. Once Mr. Dettmer finds an interesting illustration or design element he will meticulously cut around the object and continue to dig deeper like an archaeologist searching for the rest of a dinosaur skeleton after carefully uncovering a piece of the ribcage. I’m over describing when you should really just be checking this dudes work out. Enjoy.
