Book installation in the Municipal Library of Prague by Matej Krén

Today’s post combines two things I like: Books and sculpture. For your visual pleasure I selected the work of 10 artists who have turned old books, dictionaries, and encyclopedias into startling pieces of art. Some of them are inspired by book titles like Alice in Wonderland while others like artist Jacqueline Rush Lee present abstract interpretations.

It’s always a great feeling when there is a second life to things. Enjoy our selections!
