Brilliantly created by UK-based artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson, these beautiful collages of book carvings from old encyclopedias and rare books bring us into another world. All the images in the final artwork are from the original pages of the book. He goes through page by page to look for images and does not add in anything in. He turns books from being a tool to learn from the world into a means to gains insight about oneself.
