The Art of Books

Here are of few pics from an amazing collection of art pieces made from the bittersweet technique of cutting up old books.

It reminds me of the time we had to cut up, drill, nail and glue books together for the Inukshuk sculpture and photoshoot we did for the Northrop Frye Literary Festival a few years ago. I must admit, it was a strange feeling with my hand on the drill about to pull the trigger. Why is that, I wonder?
