Cecilia Levy has found a novel use for old books and comics. Instead of throwing them out, the Swedish artisttransforms them into beautiful works of paper art
Previously a bookbinder, Levy now takes the opposite approach to literature by tearing it up and pasting the pieces back together again.
She first began experimenting with 3Dpaper objectsin 2009. .
Since then she’s created a variety of different objects including cups, saucers, plates and bowls, andshe’s always on the lookout for old books to transform so that their stories may continue in a new and unique form
It may sound sacreligious to book-lovers, but when you take a look at the pictures below I’m sure you’ll agree that her work is in fact a loving testament to literature.
You can’t do that with a Kindle.
