Tom Sawyer Book Sculpture by wetcanvas Tom Sawyer Book Sculpture by wetcanvas
Tom Sawyer and Huckelberry Finn set sail in this book sculpture. The sculpture is made from a 1946 publication of "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer". Tom and Huck sit on a raft constructed of the books pages as they float down the Mississippi. Both figures are illustrations from the book that have been hand colored.

Georgous! The movement of the waves is absolutely amazing! Also a very intresting concept to make sculptures out of books. I have painted in a book before as part of a AP art project but otherwise never have done anythign with them. I have looked through your gallery a bit and the effects you can get are just amazing :) What a fun skill to have!

I will admit that i wish it wasn't classic editions you used though. I understand that they were going ot be given up but so are thousands of books that are not classic editions of famous novels. At the same time i can understand that the classic novel also enhances the artistic side of the piece though :)

It does. I like to use older editions because I feel like the book itself tells a story. It makes me wonder who read it and what the boo meant to them. Then I'm not just refreshing (for lack of a better term) the book, but also the history. I hope that makes sense, it's hard to put into works.

That's amazing! It's a great idea, though its a shame about the book.

Thank you. The majority of my books have been given to me by people who didn't want them anymore and were going to throw them out before I said I'd take them. I think of it as giving them a new life. Hope that makes you feel better about it!

It does. I like collecting unwanted books, even if I don't need them for anything. I just always think it's sad that knowledge and art goes unappreciated.
