Another Book Art – Book Sculpture

Remember my Book Art post featuring Isaac G. Salazar’s work? Here’s another artist who, like Isaac, blew me away with his ingenious works - slicing and tearing into books – Artist Brian Dettmer.

While Isaac G. Salazar took 3 years to master his art, Brian Dettmer spent almost 10 years to get to where he is now. I think for you and I, we should feel contented if we can do our little bits by simply preserving or recycling our books (The Book Recycling Era). I still prefer to start with a game of Jenga :-)

You can see Brian Dettmer in action in this CBSNews video or view all his works at his gallery.
