The Book Surgeon: Brian Dettmer

Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed."

These whimsical books are really inspiring. The idea of cutting away to get something so simple but also so intricate is wonderful. He has a genuine skill of repurposing these old books. Bravo.
