Thanks to Trend Hunter, I have seen some beautiful things done for and with books, but I think that Alexander Korzer-Robinson's spectacular creations are by far the best. Using the book as his medium, he sculpts its pages to create 3D cover art that begs to be displayed in a museum of some sort.
Originally from Berlin, Alexander Korzer-Robinson is now based in Bristol. Focusing on the 'inner landscape,' he bases his designs on the ever-changing narrative of the book he carves--which is also a reflection of life in general. For more information, visit his site.
