Books transformed into visual art
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? 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!
