Wow, I love the “Robert The” sculpture. Totally Escher-inspired.
book pr0n-tacular! especially the Cara Barer, Doug Beube, and Rober The.
A print-out of the Jonathan Callan piece now resides on my door.
Hi. Thanks for putting up the Cara Barer. She’s wonderful and she is showing at my gallery, pine street art works, in Burlington VT. We always have her work around because it is so gorgeous and interesting.
Love your site. I just found it, and not by googling or technoriting Cara. I got here through David the Designer website. (admittedly, he also has a Cara Barer image on his site)
Thanks Liza. I’ll be sure to check out Pine Street next time i’m in beautiful Burlington.
Check out the book sculptures on this website :)
Don’t miss Georgia Russell’s work – great stuff!

Wow! Amazing! I love Robert The, M L van Nice and Cara Barer especially. What agreat blog, I’ll definitely be back
I like the one that is nailed shut – makes you think…
If real books were used for this art, how horrible and despicable. No one writes an epic Trojan war an the original Van Gogh.
Some bizarre but all interesting and imaginative. New to me but I shall investigate more.
Those are some interesting concepts; another reason for me to love books, I guess!
Love it! Have you seen this book? The Book As Art (http://www.amazon.com/Book-Art-Artists-National-Museum/dp/1568986092/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1205377049&sr=8-1)
It has some pretty incredible books in there, and it is the result of this exhibit that was here in DC about a year ago (I’m kicking myself for missing it).
Anyway, first time commenting, but when I saw this post, I had to share that book!
Thanks E. I stumbled upon that book after this post and it’s great.
This movie about the Ruth & Marvin Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry in Miami Beach is also recommended for anyone excited about book arts. I gotta get down there.
Hello my friends!
The interesting name of a site – deeplinking.net
I at night 6 hours
looked in the Internet So I have found your site :)
The interesting site but does not suffice several sections!
However this section is very necessary!
Best wishes for you!
Forgive I is drunk :))
Eeeeehhhh! I’m late to comment… But how wonderful. I love literature and I love art.
Someone had mentioned how sad it is to see a book destroyed, and I would agree if the book were made with the book press and was hand set. There are few printing presses that use the old techniques but the end result shows the consideration of type, form, and message. Each piece ends up being an individual.
Technology has allowed literature to become mass produced, and many publishers will actually take back books that are not selling and recycle them. Scarcity of books (in regards to the production) is not a relative issue today, and what better way to take the homogeneous modern book and add individuality back into the printing industry.
