Art & Lit...Combined!

Okay, now onto some bloggery!

I know we lit lovers tend to be art lovers and vice versa, so I was practically drooling over Brian Dettmer's literal combination of sculpture and literature. My fellow Chicago native practices book carving with a surgical skill, removing bits and pieces to create stunning sculptures out of old encyclopedias, medical journals, and dictionaries. True to his form, Dettmer alleges that he never adds anything to his pieces, but simply uses the art of removal to create something entirely new and utterly captivating.

Books & Art fo' lyfe.
