art books

It always saddens me when the library has to cull the old books that are either worn or dated. It's like a death and I HATE doing it. My hubby is always laughing as I come home with a pile of books to keep or give to friends, because I hate to see them shredded :(

Here's a guy who's got a solution! These are amazing - saw them on HonestlyWTF and HAD to share...

"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"
