Today's inspiration is something many book lovers may either love or despise. Contemporary artist Brian Dettmer is a book sculptor. He takes vintage nonfiction books, such as old encyclopedias and medical texts, and turns them into innovative and detailed sculptures. His art, which has been featured in galleries throughout the world, has both its proponents and its critics. Many book lovers appreciate and champion his work, but others assert that what he does is essentially book mutilation. I happen to fall with those who enjoy the beauty of his art, but I'm curious to hear what you think. The first video below tells more about Dettmer and his work; the second features some of his sculptures. Enjoy!
Wishing you all a creative and inspirational Sunday. ☺
