Montreal artist Guy Laramee has created intricate and detailed sculptures from old novels.

Laramee has worked in a variety of artistic fields, and is described in the biography on his website as an interdisciplinary artist who has past worked in stage writing and directing, painting, installation and more.

The artist says the erosion of cultures has always been a main theme in his work.

His book sculptures in particular allude to the so-called threat of endangerment to books by new technologies as an example of one culture potentially on a path to disappearance.

My favorites are the ones that sport color -- the shades of green that vary down the hill is stunning!

Although Lamaree has been active for 25 years, his work has begun to garner buzz in recent years with gallery showings and shows. Stats for Carved Literature Sculptures Trending: Older & Buzzing
