Creating stories with the pages of a book?

We discovered that is possible, and by manipulating paper you can add so much value to them.

That’s the incredible and brilliant work made by Brian Dettmer aka The Book Surgeon.

Only by using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, he carves one page at a time, without adding anything but just cutting away some pieces of out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries.

“The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. The book’s intended function has decreased and the form remains linear in a non-linear world. By altering physical forms of information and shifting preconceived functions, new and unexpected roles emerge.”

We just think that this is amazing. We are looking forward to see some of these creations realized on a Moleskine notebook stuffed with words, drawings and images.

Did some body of you tried something similar?
