    Am I the only one who thinks this is fucking cool? Cuz this is fucking cool. I'd love to own one of these, more specifically the 2nd, 5th and 6th ones.

    That's cool but I really have to wonder how someone just decides to carve a book into sculptures one day.
    You gotta be pretty damn bored to come to such a conclusion.

    I guess I should have mentioned that the guy is a sculptor. It would have gone a little towards explaining how come he decided to carve something into a sculpture.

    Ah it actually says that in your post, lol.
    I was just half asleep when I read and posted. Still...carving books. Even as a sculptor that's a weird choice.
    Good results though, damn.

    I'm not an art/sculpture collector or anything, but these would look pretty sweet on my shelf.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    Pretty damn kool.

    Most of them look like grid-based srpg maps.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I want the karesansui and Fenxian Temple sculptures. I like how he even used a Japanese Buddhist text for the karesansui. He puts some thought into the media he uses and doesn't just carve up random books.

    Not going to lie, that's pretty impressive. Of course, if he had used the works of Stephen King, he would only need a single book for each sculpture.

    Let's see him make a sculpture out of War and Peace.

    (If of course he hasn't already)

    I'm a little torn on this one, it seems a shame to destroy one artform to create another, but those are pretty damn impressive.

    It looks greats but I feel bad for the books :(
    And it's not the cheapest one he used, these looks like they are old books.
