Books don't have to be boring...

Just stumbled upon Guy Laramee and his fantastic work, using old books as his medium he carves snapshots. Personally we don't think his work needs much explanation, but if you must, here's an excerpt from his Artist Statement:

"So I carve landscapes out of books and I paint romantic landscapes. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening. Piles of obsolete encyclopedias return to that which does not need to say anything, that which simply IS. Fogs and clouds erase everything we know, everything we think we are." 

Read the rest of his Artist Statement here and click here to view the rest of his work.
