Instead of letting time and bugs eat away at old books Guy Laramee creates art in unexpected places by carving landscapes right into the pages. As if by magic, his literary sculptures masterfully turn dense, dusty pages into mountains, caves, hills, fields and monuments.
According to Laramee, it can take anywhere from three days to three months to complete a topographical carving. He uses an array of tools from chainsaw blades to brushes and hand tools. He is no bored librarian with a secret unconventional hobby, this artist has an impressive background in theater writing, directing, contemporary music composition, sculpture, installation and more.
When I was driving home last week, I was lazy to remove snow from rear window of my car. Not good idea. I had to stop at the nearest petrol station. I took a photo, removed snow and I continued my way.
