The sculptures that comprise the From Within a Book series literally bring the pages of novels to life. Unlike other works of art such as those created by fellow sculptors Jacqueline Rush Lee and Guy Laramee , these ones are inspired by the book they originate from.
From trees and nests to more intricate scenes such as one taking place in an old bookshop, the sculptures in the From Within a Book series are full of wondrous imagination. Created by artist Emma Taylor, the papercrafts are stunningly intricate. Inspired by the popularity of eReaders and thus the imminent demise of print books, Taylor wanted to redirect people's attention to what really matters. She writes, "A book to me is as much a part of the story as the plot itself."
