ALEXANDER KORZER-ROBINSON MAKES BOOK SCULPTURES and paper art whose work focuses on what he calls the “inner landscape.” He lives in the United Kingdom. What he does is a biblio-excavation, cutting away the book until the only parts remaining are what he chooses. Indeed, what is left is something new—a book whose inner images are selectively revealed. See more about his work here.

Korzer-Robinson’s work is remarkable similar to the American artist Brian Dettmer. I’m not sure who came first—but does it really matter? Dettmer seems to push the creative envelope more than Korzer-Robinson—but you be the judge. What do you think? I have written about Brian Dettmer’s work before, so you can see that work here.

Stunning. Magical. Thought provoking. And I want a library shelf full of them so when someone pulls a book off to browse their breath is taken away.
