Book Art

We love artist Brian Dettmer’s beautiful, delicate and intricate visual art using old books.

He dissects through each page of the book using knives, tweezers and surgical tools to create the sculptures. The art is made simply by revealing and cutting out images and words within the books – nothing is added or relocated. Amazing!

Dettmer’s work has been exhibited throughout America, Mexico, and Europe.
