Friday Fun: Carving Art Out of Old Books

This morning I saw a tweet from OhioLink about landscapes carved from stacks of old books.  So I clicked on the link and saw some extremely creative and beautiful works of art by Guy Laramee.  To say that Laramee got some old books and carved them to look like landscapes is an understatement.  Do you remember the library phantom who left works of art made from books as gifts in various libraries and museums?  Laramee is just as creative and talented.

This is my favorite.

 Guy Laramee is an artist who works in different mediums, books is just one of them.  If you are interesting in seeing some more of his book carvings click on The Great Wall and Biblios.
