Recently having made the incredible find of Brian Dettmer‘s artwork I began to search the web for more examples of art made from books. Here’s the top ten artists in no particular order.

1. Brian Dettmer

4. Lisa Kokin

5. Abelardo Morell does both photographs of books and a fantastical collection of which this photograph is from entitled “Alice in Wonderland”.

Check out the whole collection here.

6. Carer Barer
