    This is imaginative. I like it a lot. It would be nice to see the title of the book (on the binding) pictured alongside the artwork.

    Interesting though not that creative to simply be patient with an exact-o knife..

    To the haters, you’re not thinking three dimensionally. This is no different than chiseling away at a rock. You’re chipping away to reveal something that has been hidden within, visible only now through the artist’s work.

    To take a book about watch and clock repair and carve it into a framed representation of a clockworks is at least in my opinion brilliant and saying things about not just the nature of art and literature but the nature of the world. A hidden essence beneath the covers that must be worked at to be appreciated.

    Consider things, then judge them.

    @jumanicus, obviously didn’t do that w/ all of them

    This person must have been a monk or something like that, as this job needs tons of patience, and perseverance! Beautiful outcome though!

    i see it, but i don’t exactly understand how it was done… unlike the one with folded pages to make words. still, very neat.
