Design Zen: Mindblowing Book Sculptures

And now, for a moment of Friday Zen: a collection of the best of the best in book art.

Here are five of our favorite creators breathing new life, interpretations and perspectives into a form (and often specific stories) we tend to view in the same dimensional sense every time.

Regardless of how you feel about the action of deconstructing text and tome, it’s hard to ignore the beauty of these intricate designs. For more, dig deeper into the artists’ websites—their processes and philosophies tend to be as fascinating as their output.
