Book arts are a favorite of Ravenous and recently we’ve seen two spectacular examples of book inspired paper arts. The first is by Anonymous, an artist who creates fanciful pieces in support of libraries, and leaves them around Edinburgh Scotland with notes. This was left at the National Library of Scotland:

A gramophone and a coffin, sculpted from a copy of Ian Rankin's Exit Music. The tag in this case read: For @natlibscot - A gift in support of libraries, books, words, ideas..... (& against their exit) Courtesy: Central Stn

Appeared at the Edinburgh Book Festival

For many more beautiful sculptures go to Central Stn.

The second artist is also from Great Britain, Jennifer Collier. She takes paper, turns it into fabric, then sews it into amazing pieces.  She writes of her work:

The papers themselves serve as both the inspiration and the media for my work, with the narrative of the books and papers suggesting the forms.

Little women shoes

Alice in Wonderland gloves

She creates a variety of objects that you can view at her website.
