Artist Brian Dettmer alters pre-existing books one page at a time using knives, tweezers and surgical tools. He begins by sealing the books edges, creating an enclosed vessel full of unearthed potential. Nothing inside the old encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. His precision is unreal!
Holy moly, Batman! These boot harnesses are out. of. this. world. And I’m dying to know who makes them, where I can get them, and how soon they could be mine. Update: Ta-da, it’s Prada! Thanks for the tip, Alison!
Greg Lauren, nephew of Ralph Lauren, is an artist who paints with oil on paper, creates clothes from paper, and has a superhero line made from vintage DC Comics. He has recently launched a line of wearable clothes made from vintage US Army tents and duffel bags in linen and canvas. I saw the collection a few weeks ago at Maxfield and have been lusting over that tan linen coat ever since!
