Kunst aus Büchern: 28 Projekte für spielerisches Recycling

paper crafts

In «Art from Books», Jason Thompson presents what bibliophiles can do with unloved books. Because: The artist’s eye sees more than just pages and covers. Folding, rolling, disassembling and stapling create objects that have nothing in common with the original book. "Art from Books" contains 28 step-by-step projects by various artists in which books and book parts are disassembled and then assembled into unique pieces of jewellery, bags, containers or games. Techniques from bookbinding, woodworking, papercraft, origami, and textile and decorative arts are showcased, all complemented with a healthy dose of experimentation and fun. The attractive presentation of the projects, the atmospheric photos and the gallery of various paper artists in the appendix make this book an attractive work that every book-loving artist and every art-loving book collector must have.
