Brain Dettmer, famed as “The Book Surgeon” uses knives, tweezers and surgical tools to shape-up the old dictionaries and encyclopedias into incredible artwork.
The artist is a student of Colombia College besides working on a Signage store. He carves shapes, one page at a time, in out-dated books, dictionaries and encyclopedias and transforms them into mind blowing artwork using his special instruments. Interestingly, he never adds material or change the content while re-shaping the stuff. He is truly an inspiration for many.
