Book art 2.0

 

 

  1. Magical

On closer inspection- This looks like a scene from The Little Match Girl, which makes this  book art even more  beautiful but in a chilling kind of way. A bonus: The added light.

2. Inside The Book Room

It´s a doll house. No. It´s a study. No. Whatever this awesome work of art is… it´s perfect. Bless the person who took their time to fold, glue and cut all the tiny pieces for the world to see and appreciate.

3. A Paper Romance

How utterly romantic and hauntingly detailed. The only thing missing would be for the paper figures to fall into each others arms. Stunning.

4. The Paper Tower With A Rose Garden

And this is where the romantic paper couple would life, if it were up to me. In an enchanted area with paper roses and a paper tower. ❤

5. Paper Town

This is unbelievable. Like a paper version of one of those spectacular cities that are located on a cliff in romantic Italy.

6. Peter, Wendy & The Croc

Wow. Just wow.

7. A Book Invasion

While this isn´t necessarily a book sculpture it´s definitely book art. Sure, anyone can cut out uneven holes in book pages and add a few insects. But… it´s an art to place the insects in the right positions. Easy to copy and still has a great effect!

10 Most Amazing Book Sculptures & Book Art

It looks like we´ve long passed the era of using books as a way to gain knowledge and/ or for sheer entertainment.

Because reading isn´t the only thing you can do with books. You can use books to even out a wobbly table, use books as table legs or even build your own Christmas tree out of books. The internet provides countless ideas on what you can use books for.

 

There are no boundaries when it comes to creativity.

 

Book art is a debatable thing in the book world. While the art, per se, is often beyond stunning, many book lovers believe certain book art is just book abuse. Because what book lover would be sane enough to butcher a book? Readers appreciate books. To have and to hold and to let them collect dust on bookshelves. Readers don´t just sit down, fall in love with characters and a story. They don´t just wait until they´ve finished reading and decide to get a scalpel and carve out pages ( or use a sword, in Jeoffry´s case ). That´s just sacrilegious.

 

You don´t hurt books. That´s rule #1 in the book universe. But (!!!) you can be forgiven if you belong to those creative people who create dreams and magic with books and their pages by using a sharp object. ( or if you just use a random newspaper and just add the creation to an open book. That´ll save you, too )

 

Here are the 10 most amazing book sculptures and book art created by insanely talented artists!

 

  1. Release The Magic Wand!

This is great. It looks so simple and easy to copy although it probably is anything but.

2. Butterfly Falls

This is really cute and would look amazing as a wall decoration next to a bookshelf.

3. Butterfly Book Hive

I can´t decide which is prettier. The butterflies above or this version.

4. The Wisdom Tree

Won´t you look at the leaves! Such detail and… so tiny. I would have giving myself countless scissor cuts if that were my creation. Love this.

5. The Tower Rose

I´ve tried creating one of these and failed miserably. My piss poor attempt to create such a beautiful piece of art was nothing to compared to this. Stunning.

6. I Have No Words

I can´t. I can´t imagine how long this must have taken to create. It´s so chaotic and mesmerizing. I can´t even look away. Whoever created this art is clearly DA BOMB.

7. Book-to-pus

This brilliantly crafted octopus literally looks like a creature trying to escape. Someone must have left a book open for too long * gg*

8. Literary Woods

What a gem this one is. The added black background makes this whole scene picture book worthy. The work invested here must have been immense!

9. The Hidden Bookish Temple

No words needed here. The detail work speaks for itself. Whoever created this must have had lots of love, energy and patience. LOVE.
