Ran across another blog called Centripetal Notion which had this amazing artist called Brian Dettmer. His work is Books that are carved out around artwork to create these three-dimensional master piece sculptures. I had to do a project slightly in this direction in Experimental Book Design at my undergrad at SUNY Purchase in NY. I carved out a book and filled it with Blue tinted resin to make it look like a lake, these by far excel what I created. I love the whole concept of taking a work of art (the book) and creating another art form from it.
