Books Transformed Into Visual Art - Green Diary
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? Anyhow, after passing through some skilled hands, they have gotten more appealing than they were ever. Since seeing is believing, hit the jump to see a full list of book art awaiting your approval: Anagram Bookshop (Prague) promotional images from Kaspen deserve a glance for sure. Known as Robert The, the Kingston-based artist outshines all. Brian Dettemer is one of the masters of this weirdly green art. Casey Curran etches his art on books with a scissor. UK artist S. Lucille Moroni works with 19th century church books and missals to create art. Folded books by Denise Kiggan are just incredible!

Quilling - Turning Paper Strips into Intricate Artworks Quilling has been around for hundreds of years, but it’s still as impressive and popular now as it was during the Renaissance. The art of quilling first became popular during the Renaissance, when nuns and monks would use it to roll gold-gilded paper and decorate religious objects, as an alternative to the expensive gold filigree.

Basically, the quilling process consists of cutting strips of paper, and rolling them with a special tool.
