Art From Library Discards
Jonathan Callan Builds Sculptures Out of Folded Books

By: Katie Cordrey (Rockstar) Jul 18, 10

England’s Jonathan Callan builds sculptures from folded books. As an avid reader, the artist first came to understand the world through books. He was drawn to art as a way to earn a living. In February 2010, he created an installation in Sheboygain, Wisconsin’s John Michael Kohler Arts Center. The installation was made of book discards donated for the project.

Recycling old books is part of the delight that Jonathan Callan gets from using books as objects of art. He claims that the older he grows, the more interested he is in used books—as art materials that have had a previous life.
