Julia Strand Carves Up Old Books to Create Artwork

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

juliastrandJulia Strand uses old books to make art. The artist carves up the pages of old books and turns them into delicate scenes. The drawings and artwork from the books are framed within the book’s cover.

PBS.org has more: “A cognitive psychologist who teaches at Carleton College in Minnesota, Strand works on her carvings in her spare time. She carves into old cookbooks and science books, reference books, dictionaries and books of topographical maps, removing most of the pages “so you can just see the pictures.”

You can buy these cool creations on her Etsy page.
