DIY Book Art

There are so many very talented and patient paper artists out there, who are creating wonderful, almost sculptural art from books. And being a book person (or at least ‘word’ person) it fascinates me how the book can be used in this way.

I have chosen a very simple folding technique for my books – page in half, or alternating pages in half in opposite directions – so you can see how a simple fold can work so beautifully. Grab some old books from the op-shop and experiment. I also mounted my books on the wall with that sticky velcro stuff from Bunnings. Looks good, I think.
