One artist breathes new life into old books turning it into amazing sculptures of various people and fictional characters.
Pennsylvania-based artist Jodi Harvey-Brown has magic hands that can turn old books into these extremely fascinating sculptures to convey a story. Like pop-up books, Jodi’s creation looks as if like they are coming to life.
Jodi started making these beautiful book sculptures when she got hooked from folding one of the pages of a used book from a second-hand book shop. After working on a couple more of pieces, Jodi was convinced by her husband to show her works in an artist community website wherein her work was well received.
From there on Jodi did not stop creating, her work now spans from fictional characters such as Tom Sawyer to known authors such as Mark Twain. All of her book sculptures are crafted by hand and when it is done, Jodi uses UV finish to protect it against the sun and moisture.
“The books that we love to read should be made to come to life. What we see in our imaginations as we read should be there for the world to see. My book sculptures are my way of making stories come alive.”
