Midweek meander

Continuing the theme of books I thought that it would be interesting to have a look at a few of the ways that artists are using and interpreting books as works of art.

'Snow' Cara Barer.
Book sculpture constructed from an old book soaked in a bathtub.

'Octupus Book Art'. Artist unknown.

'Dream' Isaac Salazar.
Is it carved or folded?

Title unknown, artist Maria Pisano.

Su Blackwell 'Alice'. http://www.sublackwell.co.uk/

Well what are you waiting for, stop taking all of those books to the charity shop, keep a few for yourself and give it a go, you never know it could be the start of a whole new way of working!

 With so much devastation
 in Japan and the horrifying
live footage, our thoughts are with them.

A thought for today.
