Carving out a name for himself

Found via The Lexicographer's Rules, Centripetal Notion has posted a bunch of artwork by Brian Dettmer. He carves books into works of art, and it's just amazing:

Talk about a creative use of a dictionary!

I have a group of women artist friends who do this very thing. We all get together for a day and eat and talk and work and make an "altar" out of a book. It is a collaborative and sprititual undertaking. Try it!
