Book autopsies

As a book lover and collector, I have very mixed feelings about Brian Dettmer's art: he carves into books revealing the artwork inside, creating complex layered three-dimensional sculptures.

Book Autopsies


Yes, the results are sometimes gorgeous and always interesting, but I feel badly about the books he defaces --which include a book of Rembrandt's Paintings.

I think you're right. I had a favorite 1940s dress that I wore till it was literally falling apart. I occasionally thought about saving some of the fabric in order to re-use it for a pillow or something. Never happened though.
