Very very funky books

Here's some sculpture that may give the bibliophiles among you a strange feeling. On one hand, a book, rather than being destroyed, is utterly transformed into a fascinating object that is strangely compelling. Here's an example, constructed from 3 books, and a link to see more. The artist, Brian Dettmer, literally carves out the pages leaving text and images to form these very sculptural constructions that basically transform a 2-dimensional medium into something 3-dimensional. This fellow must have some pretty sharp and pretty fine cutting tools. Wonder if he's done any botanicals? HT to Blue Collar Atheist.
