Everyone has books in their bookcase that they never touch. Let it be an old dictionary or an encyclopedia, they are collecting dust. You could just throw them out, but you can also… make landscapes out of them. Canadian artist Guy Laramée must have had the same idea when he was looking at his book collection. Guy is a man of many talents. Not only is he a very accomplished painter and sculptor, but Guy is also a highly regarded musician, composer, and stage director.

With over 30 years of experience, Guy makes these beautiful book sculptures, with some containing over 10 books per sculpture. The examples you see here, are from the The Great Wall Collection, Biblios Collection, and the Guan Yin Collection.
