50 Literary Art Designs

From Crystal-Covered Literature to Cutout Character Novels

— February 25, 2013 — Art & Design
There are virtually no limits to creativity the world of literary art. Not only are the creations and sculptures incredibly vivid and dramatic, but the materials they are made out of have their own artistic and intellectual value.

Books are slowly getting lost in the shuffle with all the digital technology that is taking the world by storm, making it more important than ever to try and hold onto some form of physical literature, even if only for nostalgic purposes. Gorgeous cover art and old fonts have an intrinsic beauty that lends itself easily to the artist's imagination, allowing them to create visually stimulating masterpieces that inspire people to get back in touch with the novel.

Literary art pieces also make for beautiful home decor.
