Given this medium's persistent evolution over time, it should come as no surprise that the book has come to be a focus for many artists around the world. As texts have become readily available through different media, contemporary artists have increasingly been exploring the interplay between the function, structure, and format of books often literally deconstructing them using scalpels and knives.
Book Art is a stunning 208 page documentation of current art, installation, and design created with and from books. The work is as diverse as books themselves: in some, sentences are cut and peeled out to create new contexts and more fluid meanings for narratives; in others, old printed pages are twisted into threads which are then bound together into delicate pieces of art that take months to make; in further examples, books are returned to the organic matter from which the paper they are printed on first came.
