Around the World in 80 Days Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Around the World in 80 Days Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
Jules Verne's classic comes to life in this alteration. Trains, steamers, a land raft, and even a Japanese junk (yes, that is the correct term for this ship) have been sculpted out of the book's pages. Even the near fatal railroad bridge, troublesome buffalo, and barren Rockies are depicted. A must have for all classic book lovers!

For sale. Visit my shop for information and additional views: [link]

On a side note; this is definitely the most challenging alteration I've taken on. I'd never read the book before, but I wanted to do the story because I had an idea for a hot air balloon, Imagine my disappointment when I read the book and there's no balloon ride. That aside, I wanted to show all of the means of transportation Mr. Fogg used, and I think I got fairly close. If anyone knows of a book with a hot air balloon, let me know!

I know the song that Bing Crosby sang, but no the book. This is beautiful!
