Brian Dettmer - Book Autopsies

Artist Brian Dettmer seals, then cuts into older dictionaries, encyclopedias, textbooks, science and engineering books etc, exposing select images and text to create intricate three-dimensional derivative works that reveal new or alternative interpretations of the books. The final result is a fascinating three dimensional glimpse into, not only the book it's carved out but also the whole process of print. More of his work can be found on his blog here.
