Brian Dettmer is an artist whose medium is the book. That’s not to say that he’s an artist of pen and ink but rather an artist of scalpel, tweezers… and books themselves. He dissects books, he creates sublime sculptures with them.
Some mind blowing stuff. If you’re in Chicago, San Francisco, New York or Barcelona right now – and why wouldn’t you be? – check out his website for details on the exhibitions currently wrecking minds in those towns.

Thanks to my buddy Zach Browman for pointing this out to me.
