Apparently, Brian Dettmer isn’t the only über-talented sculptor cutting into books. Guy Laramee, an interdisciplinary artist, is best known for transforming the edges of vintage dictionaries, hardbacks, and encyclopedias into meticulously detailed landscapes with plateaus, temples, mountains, and valleys. WTF, right?!
Wowwwwwwwww! people are so talented. So inspiring. I wish I had to patience to create art..
I think that’s why I love the camera so much..
