Book pages turned into sculptures inspired by their stories

Pennsylvania-based artist Jodi Harvey-Brown creates whimsical sculptures of ships, dragons, and other fantastical characters from books. No, not inspired by the books, they are actually made out from parts of the book.

She creates book alterations, as she like to call them, to give books that 3D treatment. Sort of like going to the movies, minus the clunky glasses. She’s taken titles like, ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea’, ‘Tom Sawyer’, and ‘Moby Dick’ and fashioned out sculptures that seem to make the book pages alive. The engaging stories of these classical books, complemented by the imagery of the alterations, make for a more visual and imaginative experience to literature.

The artist has some available sculptures – including the Millennium Falcon – on Etsy.
