i'm taking this quiet moment (seriously, if i get 45 minutes, today, i'll be thrilled) during nap time to make my 30 days of lists book. [i'm secretly giddy at the idea of making something purely for the fun of it. ... whee!]
so i'll get back later with some pics of the creation. :)

till then, though, LOOK. AT. THIS. 
this guy, Brian Dettmer, is amazing. he hand carves EACH AND EVERY PAGE of these books - medical journals, encyclopedias, etc, to make these unbelievable pieces. 


so thankful to my friend Mike for the link to 
THIS  amazing and unbelievable display from the book surgeon
it completely blew my mind.

GO HERE to see more of the gallery.
i can't even imagine what it must be like to see these in person. soooo fantastic. and a great way to lead into book month! (note: books are good for other things aside from sculpting... just a reminder :)

WoW! I've seen books carved out before, but none ever looked this cool! I love it that he uses anatomy. Super cool.
