Book Surgeon by Brian Dettmer

Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time. Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures.

Night Angel Book Cover Series by Herman Chaneco

With images of assassins that change based on the light, the book covers designed by Herman Chaneco mimic the content of the books. The book covers and posters designed by los angeles-based designer Herman Chaneco turn the printed page into a small-scale installation. The pop-up titles contain figures designed so that a different image is produced based on the differing angles of its light source.
