Amazing gallery. I wonder:how do you create sculptures out of books?

Thank you!  Everyone has their own approach.  I tend to think of it along the same lines as drawing.  Break everything down to basic shapes and then build them together.

Do you mean just cut it up while the pages are still in the book, or pull the pages out then glue them together?

Cut the pages out.

Do you just use old books that are relatively cheap?

I very rarely buy a book to make a sculpture. Most are given to me, either by people cleaning out their attics or the person who commissioned the piece. If I absolutely must by I check second hand shops and yard sales and my last resort is Ebay.

I have no clue how you can bring yourself to cut up books, but this artwork is amazing, so, just this once, I'm okay with it. :) But only because you use the torn books to tell a story. :D You really do have incredible talent.

That's exactly what I try to do. I'm a book lover, and if I didn't feel like I could portray the story, I wouldn't touch them. There are a few books that I'm dying to do but I don't feel like I'm capable of doing them justice yet.

Ah. Have you ever contemplated doing a Redwall piece? They're book that were written by a British author named Brian Jacques. He died in February 2011, but he was always my favorite author.
