Stunning Cut-Out Book Art By Brian Dettmer That Will Leave You Scratching Your Head | blurppy
Artist Brian Dettmer is a talented artist and his media of choice happens to be books. With a little bit of careful carving, he can make amazing creations from already printed pages. While there are a number of artists who work with books, it seems safe to say that Brian has definately earned his nickname ” the book surgeon.” (Is it just me or does that sound like a bad guy from the hit TV show Dexter.) Dettmer is originally from Chicago although he currently resides in Atlanta, GA. Brian is known for his detailed and innovative sculptures with books and other forms of antiquated media.
