Book Sculptures



Learn how to make amazing book sculptures or book art by folding the pages of a book while the pages are still bound together. This type of art gives unexpectedly beautiful sculptures which are both elegant and sturdy. Some altered books require cutting and/or glue; the ones presented here are made by folding only. You can achieve incredible transformations with just folding. It's origami with a twist!

In order to preserve our natural resources, books were not bought and used to form the book sculptures. Instead, books which would have been recycled were used so as to save our trees. In fact, most of the books used in this web site were unsellable organizers. These day planners were either expired (last years' edition) or had misprints in them so they could not be sold.

All the organizers were donated by Slingshot, an all volunteer, non-profit Collective. Check their web site for more details.
