Brian Dettmer carves beautiful art out of outdated books

Brian Dettmer uses outdated books, dictionaries and encyclopedias and carves them into incredible sculpture artworks.

With the help of knives, tweezers and surgical tools, he produces some of the finest book sculptures I have seen in a while. Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. He currently lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia.
