Book Art: Iconic Sculptures and Installations Made from Books | Paul Sloman
20 posts | 1 to read
For centuries books have contained and presented that information that has allowed humankind to study and interpret the world. As the written word had become reality available through different media, contemporary artist have increasingly been exploring the interplay between the function, structure, and format of books literally deconstructing then using scalpels and knives. BOOK ART is a stunning documentation of current art, installation, and design created with and from books. The fascinating range of examples, which is as diverse as books themselves, offers eloquent proof that- despite digital media's inroads as sources of text information - the book's legacy as a carrier of ideas and communication is being expanded today in the creative realm.

My book folding kit for this morning! Yesterday, at the library, we hosted a Book Art Workshop. It was the best! I learned how to fold books and finished one yesterday. Today I am starting another. 😊📖

Hi all! Thanks for all the get-well wishes on my last post 💖❤️💗, they mean a lot! I‘m still not 💯 better, but we are back home and I‘ve been resting as much as I can. Here is a bookish picture for you all — some of the book art inside the library of the school we toured — Rice University. I‘ve read almost nothing in the past week 😱!

julesG Feel better soon. 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 Glad you‘re feeling better!! I‘ve been doubling my vitamin D and it seems to be helping, along with juicing oranges as frequently as possible. I was under the weather only for a day or so this winter/Spring (?)🤞🏽and yes, that‘s Vitamin D as in 🐶 I saw a Dr. Mercola video and decided to try it and it works! 2y
BookwormM I can also recommend Vitamin D have been taking it over a year and despite being on immune suppressing drugs I have not been ill yet touchwood 2y

Suet624 I‘m so sorry! I missed your previous post and didn‘t know you were sick. Glad to hear you‘re feeling a bit better. 2y
ValerieAndBooks @julesG Thank you! I have not needed a nap today yet, so 🤞 2y
ValerieAndBooks @JanuarieTimewalker13 @BookwormM thanks for the heads up on vitamin D! Definitely something to look into. 2y
ValerieAndBooks @JacqMac thanks 😊!! 2y
ValerieAndBooks @LauraBeth getting there! Each day a little better, thanks! 2y
ValerieAndBooks @Suet624 thanks! Usually colds don‘t hit me this hard, but having to travel just prolonged it, I think. Feeling a bit better today! 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 You‘re welcome!!! 2y
JanuarieTimewalker13 @BookwormM that‘s fantastic!!! I also watch Dr. John Bergman- he‘s a chiropractor with videos on YT and has a lot of info on immune suppressing drugs (sorry, I always immediately think RA bc it seems to be ubiquitous). You may want to check him out. I‘m no sure how I stumbled upon him. (edited) 2y
BookwormM @JanuarieTimewalker13 I have inflammatory arthritis and have now been diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis which is why I am on immune suppressing drugs will check out your suggestion 👍 2y
ValerieAndBooks @BookwormM hugs- it can be a challenge to find what works to help you feel even a bit better 💖 @JanuarieTimewalker13 💖 2y
DivineDiana Just seeing this. Sorry to learn of your illness and hope you are feeling better! 💗 2y

Here's a fun TED TALK about Book Art from the artist 👨‍🎤 #bookart Designing books is no laughing matter. OK, it is.

CrowCAH Love it when the spines create a picture! 2y
tpixie @CrowCAH another one he showed on the Ted talk was interesting. The spine had a picture , and then as U pull the book off the shelf two other pictures showed up on the front of book, which were supposed to tell a story in 3 frames 2y
CrowCAH @tpixie wow, that sounds sooo cool! 2y
tpixie @CrowCAH lol kind of hard to explain but it was interesting to see it on the video!! 2y
