Book Sculptor Extraordinaire - Artistic Genius

Brian Dettmer is a Book Sculptor. He painstakingly carves out books (or alters them, as he prefers) with only a scalpel - a creative world-first!

The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, should award Brian with a Grand Prix Design Lion or a Titanium & Integrated Lion for creating a rare art form in itself. He deserves it. His artistic genius deserves it.

On a lighter note, (and I'm only guessing)... Brian must really hate books! Or he must be a typical digital native - a denizen of a future e-world where people don't have a clue what a good ol' hardback is good for. But thanks to Brian's genius, we're sure touch-feel-see books (as we know them) will be around longer. (Joke over. Insert smiley face here!)
