Brian Dettmer is an American artist who takes old books and turns them into beautiful works of art by cutting away selected parts to reveal layered images and text. I know when I was a child, I was told tons of times never defacing books. But I have to say, I was really impressed by this set of work. That is incredibly amazing.
