My name is Jakub Pavlovsky and I’m a 21-year-old supporter of reading books. I was born in Slovakia but I’ve been living in the Czech Republic for several years. A few months ago, I realized that people weren’t reading books as much as they did before. Nowadays, they prefer all the modern technologies rather than a lovely and interesting book. Of course, there are still many people who never forget about the beauty of stories written on paper. Unfortunately, there are more those who just...

For over seventeen years I have transformed used books into sculptures through a wide range of artistic approaches. Working with the nature of the books that I find, I’m interested in delving into the internal landscapes of books to create new narratives.

I Give New Life To Old Books That I Find In Thrift Stores
Gingerina
20 mar 2015 10:32

Back in 2012, while cutting through a familiar alley in Seattle, I noticed a box of hardback novels sat beside a dumpster. I took one look at them and thought, “Why are these being thrown away? I can use them for something”. Three years later, here I am. I have experimented with a countless amount of novels found in alleys and thrift stores. I have spent sleepless nights curled over my desk with glue up to my elbows, fingers cut from my clumsiness with an art knife, and all of it fueled by...

Post The Most Beautiful Examples Of Sculptures Made Out Of Books

23 dec 2014 12:51

Old and heavy books always seem like a mysterious and infinite well of wisdom and imagination for me. That moment, when you pick up an old book from a shelf and wipe away thick layer of dust from it‘s cover, is full of magic. However, book is so much more than pages full of words. I've always thought that it would be wonderful to give old books a second life. Some artists make it happen by turning old books, dictionaries and encyclopedias into admirable sculptures.

New York City-based artist Brian Dettmer's nickname is the "Book Surgeon," and with good reason. His art is created almost exclusively using old books, text books, and encyclopedias. Dettmer uses surgical tools, like scalpels and knives to transform these old books into amazingly intricate works of art.

Couple Alexandra and Chris decided to do something a little unconventional for their engagement shoot. Okay, they decided to do something A LOT unconventional for their engagement shoot. I mean, considering that engagement shoots generally feature photos of the couple smiling/hugging/kissing/gazing into each others’ eyes and take place in the woods/by a barn/on the train tracks/at the park. This one, well, they’re like smashing a dude’s face in and pushing him off a ledge. You know, just to...

Awesome Proposal

In an incredible display of adorable creativity, redditor ppaul9 wrote a children’s book about his relationship with his girlfriend in order to propose to her. After having it illustrated and printed, he worked with a covert photographer who stuck the book in the kids section of their local library and then waited behind some shelves to document the proposal. While they were on a date, the couple stopped at the library to return some books and check out some more for the girlfriend’s nieces and nephews. The boyfriend pulled out his book, told her it looked like a good one, and asked her to read it to him.
