Are These the Coolest Books Ever?

book-1-640x428

Artist Guy Laramee is a master of creating sculptures by transforming books into fantastic works of art. We featured him in the December issue of Boys’ Life and I thought I’d share some of his work for you all.

His sculptures include caves, mountains, volcanoes and flowing water. Take a look at a few of his best:

    Interesting. But too bad he chose to desecrate an old Bible. So much for reverence.

      That’s a good point, and one that I considered when posting these photos. After doing some research, it looks like the artist uses books that are otherwise damaged and unusable. I’d never endorse or recommend destroying a book.

        So the book already a a giant hole from cover to cover that the artist just “sculpted”?

      He shouldn’t have done it any way. :( You should never destroy God’s word, no matter how old it is.

        Maybe he just had a pile of books and grabbed one that just so happened to be a Bible.

        Oh I think he knew that it was the Bible. It says so right on the back of the book.
