Way Cool Art Books

Brian Dettmer carves into books revealing the artwork inside, creating complex layered three-dimensional sculptures.

He does not alter, insert or move any of the books' contents. He seals, then slices and carves into older textbooks, dictionaries, encyclopedias, medical guides, science books, engineering books, history books, comic books, and others, exposing select images and text to create intricate derivative works which impart or reveal new or alternative interpretations.

Are these cool or what?
