Paper really is a fascinating medium, and book art has been popping up all over the Internet. I thought I’d share some paper art I’ve come across lately, in the form of re-purposed vintage books. Please do not interpret this blog post as permission to chop up our Falcon Library books.
Michael Bom of Bomdesign creates Boekelampen, which we are quaintly told in Dutch are gemaakt uit oude boeken (made out of old books!)
The beautiful folded books below, are from one of the inspirational window displays atAnthropologie.The folded church book below is made by French artist, Lucille Moroni , who participated in the Paper Biennial in 2006. She first saw a book with folded pages in a shop window in Lyons, and knew at once that this was something for her. Now she works with 19th century church books and missals, taking care to fold the pages to correspond with the contours of the gilded decorations on the pages.
