Incredible Carved Book Landscapes by Guy Laramee

Every book has it’s piece of mystery and intrigue until you read it, and after that, it’s just an object sitting on a shelf and a dust magnet. It’s not interesting anymore. Well, that’s not the case if you are Guy Laramee. He transforms every book into a piece of art, by carving it.

So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are.
