Extreme book art

I love this quote: “There’s book art…and then there’s extreme book art.”

Check out Judy Berman’s Flavorwire article on Spanish artist Alicia Martín, who created the stunning installation shown above at Madrid’s Casa de America. The article features photos of several other installations, all of which make a book lover’s heart go pitter-pat. Berman calls them exhilarating, I call them exuberant.


About Fletcher DeLancey

Socialist heathen and Mac-using author of the Chronicles of Alsea, who enjoys pondering science, politics, well-honed satire (though sarcastic humor can work, too) and all things geeky.

    This exuberance and force is the other side of the coin of the sculptures created by the mysterious Edinburgh artist you showed us in two beautiful posts, pure delicacy.
    Opposite but complementary tributes to the wonderful symbol of human knowledge and creativity: the book…And we can add our adorable friend Mr. Morris Lessmore. 🙂
    Thank you so much for sharing all these book lover foods!!!
