The Ruby Road Detective went searching for the latest and the most fabulous in recycled art and happened upon a controversial but intriguing art medium…book sculpture!

Wetcanvas creates amazing works of art from old books. According to the website, the original creation was a 1941 book called the Story Teller. Website link

This sculpture, also from Wetcanvas, is gorgeously hand carved! A little digging revealed the name of the artist – Jodi Harvey-Brown. What was interesting was a casual remark by the artist in the comment section. Jodi said she received a great deal of hate mail. Do folks think she is destroying old books?
Further detective work on Pinterest revealed other artists who create masterpieces from old, neglected books.

And the last find is a dress comprised of books!
