Carved Book Landscapes by Guy Laramee

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 trow 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.

STAR WARS Identities: The Exhibition

The true Star Wars fan has to go to the STAR WARS Identities Exhibition, which is in Montreal Canada. This exhibition will stop in 12 cities during its six-year tour. At this exhibition, you follow Luke and Anakin Skywalker, from their origins on Tatooine, to the friends and mentors they meet during adolescence, through the choices they make that will define them as adults.

The exhibition features amazing props, customs, models and artworks, which allow you to see Star Wars in a whole new way. There is even a quest where you can shape your own Star Wars character, and you’ll be placed in the center of all action.

For more information on this exhibition and to buy tickets go to the Exhibition website and check their Facebook page for recent updates.
