Books into Art Objects

Atlanta-based artist Brian Dettmer uses exacto-knives, tweezers, and surgical instruments to transform discarded books into amazing art.

The results are startlingly different every time. The photo above was featured this morning at The New Yorker’s blog, the Book Bench. For more images of his work over the past few years, click on Dettmer’s website.

For the transcript of a brief interview with Dettmer (and for more images), click here.

An exhibit of the artist’s most recent work is on view until March 19th at Atlanta’s Museum of Contemporary Art.
