Books: Back To Their Roots!

Australian Artist Carves Paper and Books
Artist Kylie Stillman recycles paper and books by turning them into carved sculptures. Though not as jaw dropping as the work of the “Book Surgeon” Book As Art: The Book Surgeon, Stillman’s works are nonetheless still a conceptual masterpiece.

Using a scalpel, Stillman cuts right into the stack of books, creating beautiful inverted reliefs of trees and the birds that once inhabited them. Her works remind us where the paper for the books came from, by turning the thousands of pages into versions of their original tree form.
