Carved books by Guy Laramee

This is unbelievable.  These carvings are actually done out of books!!!












"So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint Romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are." - quoted by Guy Laramee




Laramee’s next show will be in April of 2012 at the Galerie d’Art d’Outremont in Montreal.

  2. this is pretty creative and knowing how you feel about e readers I guess we need to be creative with our "real" books. 1 bad thing about the nook; if you are reading a book with pix you have to go to your computer to really see them; although I don't have the newest nook!
