Origami artists have been transforming paper into varied, visually striking works of art since centuries. However, an entirely different wagon of artists has stretched it across the paper and is creating the same magic with books. Had these books not been morphed into unusual artworks, you might have seen them bedecking some landfill, a ditch or a waste-bin. Who knows?
