DRM be damned: How to protect your Amazon e-books from being deleted If you buy e-books from Amazon and want to engage in a bit of digital civil disobedience—by stripping the files’ DRM and making sure that Amazon can’t deny you access—we’re about to show you how. Yes, many parts of the Internet have known about this technique for some time now, but we feel that it bears mentioning again here. Over the past week, the tech world has been abuzz with news that—surprise, surprise—Amazon can remotely wipe any Kindle, at any time, for effectively any reason. (The company did it before, ironically, with George Orwell’s 1984, back in 2009.) This week’s case involves a Norwegian woman (Google Translate) named Linn Nygaard. "I have not heard anything from Amazon about this, except that I got a very strange phone [call] earlier from someone with a hidden number," Nygaard told Norwegian broadcaster NRK. Many speculated that because she was buying content licensed for the UK from Norway, Nygaard somehow ran afoul of Amazon’s licensing deals.

Incredible Book Art by Brian Dettmer [30 pics] Born in Chicago but currently living and working out of Atlanta, Georgia, contemporary artist Brian Dettmer creates incredible works of art with old books and tremendous patience. Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian meticulously exposes various layers to create his mind-blowing artwork. Dettmer has received critical acclaim around the world and his work can be found in countless galleries and publications. Below you will find a small sample of his art along with an artist bio and statement from Dettmer. The age of information in physical form is waning. The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. Explanation of Process In this work I begin with an existing book and seal its edges, creating an enclosed vessel full of unearthed potential. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Sources

Apprentice Alf’s Blog | Everything you ever wanted to know about DRM and ebooks, but were afraid to ask. Eco Tuesdays / The UnwantedBooks | SENSE&GRACE Buen Día ! As much as I love sculptural book art, I love the idea that this art is made from damaged or unwanted books. I feel for all the trees. I can not change a lot with my feelings I believe books are an important treasure and possession. Nevertheless I try to posses as few books as possible. I used to buy a lot of books not just the ones I read but decoration, crafts, traveling an so on. Today I want to share with you this stunning , intricate and detailed Book Art of five diferent artists. It amazes me how Australian artist Kylie Stillman some how turns old books back to what they were “trees”. This fabulous book art is by the talented artist Isaac G. The Giving Tree Proyect by the amazing Japanese artist Yuken Teruya. This tree-dimensional book art work is by Su Blackwell.
