> The Things You Can Read: Books as ART?

The Things You Can Read welcomes you and thanks you for your readership. We, here at The Things You Can Read, ask your help, if you visit our site regularly, please follow us either via email or Google Friend Connect.  Launched on June 7, 2012, our site has already attracted a great deal of attention.  One of the goals of the site is to feature reviews of Children's Picture Books, Young Adult novels and Adult Literary Fiction/Nonfiction.  A second goal for the blog is to be a resource for teachers of English and writing--with examples of student created writing, writing tips, resource links, and the opportunity to pick the brain of a seasoned English teacher.  To spice things up...every now and then, we'll also include random quotes and thoughts on education and life in general, but our ultimate goal is to reach out into the blogosphere and be a "Book Whisperer" and "Writing Whisperer" to children and adults of all ages.   Thank you for your readership.  Here is to a lifetime filled with reading and writing.

Books as ART?

Antiquarian Book Collage by Alexander Korzer-Robinson

We admit that we, here at The Things You Can Read, are visual folks, which is probably why we are so impressed with the work of Alexander Korzer-Robinson.  Over at Flavorwire you can view ten of Alexander Korzer-Robinson's scultptural antiquaian book collages.  The artist is attracted to the medium because of the randomness of the elements.  However, it doesn't look so random to us.  We, don't know about you, but cutting up an old book seems like a scary prospect, but after viewing what Korzer-Robinson is able to create you might think differently.  Enjoy these gorgoues one-of-a-kind creations over at Flavorwireor take a peek at the artist's website.  Let us, Here at The Things You Can Read, know what you think of the collages!

  1. These are amazing! I know another incredible artist whose art involves... carving landscapes inside books. Here's a link: http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2012/06/new-carved-book-landscapes-by-guy-laramee/
    What he can do is simply unbelievable. I'd love to own one of those.
