    Are you effing kidding me? What is with all of you mental midgets complaining about “destroying a book”? Are you seriously overlooking the immense skill, talent and creativity it would take to pull something like this off? If anything this furthers the notion that reading allows one to “create” and “dream”. If these books could speak I’m sure they’d be ecstatic to be displayed in such a way. So to all you whiners, pull that stick out of your ass and see the forest through the trees.

    All I have to say is this work is stunningly creative and hats off to the ARTIST who realized this beautiful creation.

  29. Britt Says:

    I love books…why make them unusable?

  30. Kevikna Says:

    Geez, that’s amazing how this guy can do that?

  31. Wow. Says:

  36. Sander Versteeg Says:

    This one is very inspiring

  37. ilham Says:

    This is truly exquisite! It takes a handful of patience and perseverance to create something as impressive as this. A salute to the artist! There are thousands and thousands of books all over the world, not to mention the numbers of copies per book, so why complain about A few books? Would you thought of doing something as unique as this?

  38. cherryberry Says:

  40. Darla Says:

    Oh well, one book down a million more where it came from. And I am sure no one complains about it cause the books has been paid for, and the books aren’t alive so stop being so damn pessimistic and get a life. I love art. I love this and if you don’t like it. Go jump off a bridge cause you’ll do humanity a favor.

  41. Andrea Says:

    Yeah…What Dan said!! Seriously, these are an amazing work of art. So unique! As many people as there are that THROW AWAY books this is a very creative way to recycle them!! Come on people, for obviously liking to read you really should have more of an open mind.

    I think it kicks ass. As many copies of the sh***y twighligt books there are out there this guy could make them something at least nice to look at.

  53. victoria Says:

    i love book sculptures. they require great skill and planning, i just wish they weren’t words like “dream” and so on. for me it puts them in that arts and crafts category. maybe he should try a word that a girl would not be using for her tramp stamp :)

  54. Bob Costa Says:

    There are many artists that have done better things with this medium. It is so dumb to carve “Read” into a book. What message does that send?

  60. leapster Says:

    way to sabotage books, if you must why wouldn’t you at least make something more interesting. what if someone wanted to read that sometime. That is the point of books when you just want to read something, oops i carved it into little pieces. try whittling you can still be working with the same materials, and even make something useful.

  61. Koming Says:

    As much as it’s pretty, if the message was “go outside” it would make more sense.

    It’s like destroying a sculpture writing a message on it saying “go appreciate sculptures”.

  62. Tg Says:

    note to self, don’t lend this guy my books

  63. Suni Smith Brandt Says:

    ABSOLUTELY AMAZING !!!!! Makes the book look better than just sitting on a shelf in a bookcase at your home !!!! Very Intriguing and good way to use a used book that will never be read again !!!! BRAVO

  64. Kiah Says:

    I love these! And You people need to chill the hell out, THE PAGES ARE FOLDED, NOT CUT. You can unfold them, and read them again. Maybe you should pay a little more attention to detail instead of rushing to the comments and yelling OMG YOU RUIND THE BOOKS.

  65. Noah Hornberger Says:

    These inspire me!

  66. jane Says:

    it’s creative. it’s inventive. too bad i love books too much to fold or cut the pages like this. haha, but it is cute.

  67. ADAMTHECOOL Says:

    AWESOME!

  68. Mahima Yadav Says:

    Its amazing…..what an art..
    fully appreciated…

  69. Rae Says:

    It looks really cool, but it hurts my soul to see books like this, unable to be read. It would have been better if they were just journals that had nothing written in them.

  72. Alice Says:

    I love the concept but, like Rae, I find it sad to see books treated like simple pieces of origami paper. I love books and yes, it would have been a bit better to have used Journals with useless jibberish written in them for this particular project.

  73. Katie Says:

    How can you you appreciate the concept of this but not the execution? those complaining that the books are damaged or that this is some kind of sacrilage, rationality tells us that BOOKS are being changed, not the literature. and they arent being destroyed, just temporarily altered. anyway its not like these are first editions most likely, or books in a library. some of your souls are just too pure i guess…every time a page gets folded and angel loses its wings, right?

  74. Jane Says:

    Ils ont ruiné l’intégrité des pages de livre en les pliant. J’espère qu’ils n’étaient pas de bons livres…
