These old books live on as works of art.
Artist Kerry Miller has spent years taking old, forgotten books and giving them new life as works of art.
Now, as she gets ready to retire, the Cantor Fine Art gallery is honoring her with a gorgeous video tribute.
“The video offers a glimpse into the magic of her book sculptures and gives us some insight into the painstaking process it takes to create her miniature worlds,” the gallery stated in a post to its website. “It also serves as a bit of a swan song, as Kerry will stop making her book sculptures for the foreseeable future, in order to focus on her family.”
As the video shows, Miller has to destroy the books to make them into something new, but there’s a kind of poetry to the process of taking one art form and turning it into another.
Miller’s work has been popularized around the internet, and it’s now a hot target for museums and collectors. If this is your first introduction, you should treat yourself and check out some of her incredible pieces below.
