Everyday Design: Book Page Sculptures

This is our inaugural post for the Everyday Design series. We’ve loved living in our little farm house and connecting with our local community just because we get to help expose ourselves and those around us to art and design in the most unlikely places. Thus was born the Everyday Design Series, a series of posts that look at the everyday events and products of our lives and then connecting those items and events with art and design inspired by them. This month it’s books; I love to read and to travel to random far off and even fictional areas to have wonderful adventures without ever leaving my chair. I also love the power books and print have had on the development of civilization and our continued growth due to our ability and freedom to research, learn, and develop ourselves through the printed word. So here’s to books and their continued influence and power in our lives!

The artist that I have become most enamored with as I’ve perused books and the art of books has to be Cara Barer and most of the images I’m using are from the De Santos Gallery website, they do such a great job presenting their artists work. So please enjoy the works of Cara Barer and check out her page on the De Santos Gallery site.

Another wonderful gallery to visit, and it just happens to be in the OKC area, is Artspace at Untitled. This next image is from their Altered Books gallery show that was simply amazing.

Well I hope you enjoyed this excursion in the world of books and how they have inspired art and design.

Till next time…
