Amazing Book Sculptures

Old and heavy books look a little mystical and, even without knowing what information is hidden under the cover, it seems that in any case the reader expects a store of wisdom and a source of incredible imagination. This time, when you take a hard fact, covered with dust, from the shelf and open the first page, and there is real magic.

At this point, anything is possible. Nevertheless, for creative people of the book – it’s not just words and information. In their hands, the book can turn into something completely different and become unrecognisable, but in a new way beautiful. In this review we present the 25 most beautiful sculptures made from books.
