If you’re a fan of book art, you probably know the works of Brian Dettmer. Based in New York, he is one of the most influential artists working with books and paper.
Dettmer’s portfolio of book art is amazingly large and versatile. Opposite to other artists, he doesn’t limit himself to one form, pioneering the creative use of books in art.
His fascination with books started in 2005, when he created his first works – beautiful sceneries carved inside single hardcover books – something many today’s artists do as well.
But the works of Brian Dettmer are much more than that. You’ll see in his collection impressive carvings made from stacks of books, wall reliefs, book towers, and book installations.
Some of the works are showcased below, but make sure to visit artist’s website to explore this fascinating world in detail.
