(I am all about things dealing with books today. Go figure. :tongue)

The Book Surgeon artwork (http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/the-book-surgeon-15-pieces)

Description from the site linked to:

"Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed."

A must see. :)

It is amazing, isn't it?

I would never have that much patience.

That first one with the human head really stands out because of the color.

Wonderful artwork. It took some serious skill to carve those out.
