i don’t want iloveboeken to become a blog that only showscases book art, but i just can’t pass this one up. Brian Dettmer is an Atlanta-based artist and i’m surprised that i never heard about this guy, since he visited Holland twice last year at the Graphic Design Festival in Breda and the Holland Paper Biennale in Rijswijk.

if you were interested in my last post about Tree of Codes, you will surely like his work. Dettmer seals the edges of books and peals away all those pages with an x-acto knife, scalpel or tweezers, never knowing what he’ll find next. read more about his work at the New Yorker website.
