A couple months have passed since we last paid a visit to Department of Awesome Book Art. These beautiful book sculptures were created by UK-based mixed media and collage artist Kerry Miller. Using old, discarded books as her subjects, Miller gives new life to each abandoned volume by painstakingly carving out and arranging the illustrations found within them. Sometimes she also uses inks or watercolors to enhance those illustrations.

“My work is a means of distilling the essence of a book, whilst releasing the images and allowing them to reach a new audience. I view it as a collaboration, a partnership with the past, giving new purpose to old volumes that may otherwise never see the light of day or simply end up in recycling. As technology threatens to replace the printed word, there has never been a better time to reimagine the book.”

Visit Kerry Miller’s website to check out more of her bibliotastic artwork.

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, “This is what it is to be happy.”  -Sylvia Plath.

Just because Beowulf‘s influence on Tolkien isn’t news doesn’t mean the publication of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s translation of the epic poem this week isn’t exciting. But while Tolkien’s name alone may be enough for the serious fan, Ethan Gilsdorf at the New York Times has given general readers an introduction to the history of the new translation complete with some insight into Tolkien’s love of the epic poem.

I NEED THIS RIGHT NOW.
