book artist shenanigans

Many artists’ books are playful and shenaniganish, but there are a couple who seem particularly worthy of mention on Library Shenanigans. One is Brian Dettmer, whose “book autopsies” might be considered a librarian’s nightmare: he carves out the illustrations in encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other books and turns them into three-dimensional book sculptures.

 

 

 

Another is Zach Gage, whose ANTAGONISTIC BOOKS set (Danger and Curiosity) self-destruct in different ways; each can only be “read” once.
