Guy Laramee Book Sculpture
The art of book sculpting has become a little 'old' in the last couple of years, it was difficult to see how anyone was going to take it further than the somewhat 'crafty', if very skilled, cut-out silhouettes and quirky visual literary references... and then along came Guy Laramee. Astonishingly original and, for the first time in my experience of book sculpture, an artist has created something which is beautiful, something which goes a long way beyond simply clever. These are amazing pieces with real meditative power. Thanks to Mark for the heads-up.
