LoremIpsumII A Surprising Revival for Old Books

Artist Jacqueline Rush Lee turns used books into beautiful sculptural forms that surprise and delight, whether she fires them in a potter’s kiln, folds, bends and stitches them, soaks them in water, or casts them in cement to create what she calls “imprescos”.

Lee’s work adds a new layer of meaning to the stories told within these found volumes, and makes you wonder about who once owned, read, and loved these well-worn books. Check out Lee’s amazing work, and if you’re inspired to give new life to some of your own old books, take a look at Playing with Books: The Art of Upcycling, Deconstructing, and Reimagining the Book by Jason Thompson.

  3. Bonjour, je viens de faire mon premier livre, avec certainement quelques erreurs. Vos critiques sont les biens venues. Quelqu’un pourait-il me dire comment enlever des pages lorsqu’il y en a de trop… Est-il possible de rectifier un livre lorqu’il a déjà été édité? Merci à vous.
