These stunning painted book sculptures by Mike Stilkey use recycled books and book spines as canvases to create whimsical and unique portraits. Stilkey, an LA-based artist, relied on book donations by Rice University and bookstores in the Houston area to create his wonderful pieces of art.
Many of the books used to create these playful portraits and painted book sculptures by Mike Stilkey were salvaged. Stilkey liked the idea of reusing discarded items as canvases. Creative, eco-conscious and unique art work fit for an arty bookworm--how novel!
