Cutting-Edge Books

Known as “The Book Surgeon” artist Brian Dettmer dissects  books with knives, tweezers, and surgical tools to create these amazing works of art. Using out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries, he carves one page at a time and manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his unique sculptures.  Originally from Chicago, Dettmer lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia.
