Just don’t do this with our books!

Kelvin Grove library is showcasing a collection of inspired sculptures made from books.

Libraries are more than books and books are more than a good read.  Kelvin Grove library is hosting More than a Good Read – a beautiful collection of sculptures made from books.

The works were used as centrepieces for a library conference and are now touring as part of the 2012 National Year of Reading.  They were created by members of the Logan City Council Libraries and Cultural Services Team – proving that librarians can be more too!

The works are in display cabinets on Levels 2 and 5, just opposite the lift.  While on level 2, you may want to relive your childhood by examining the display of works by Maurice Sendak.

Sculptures made from books are growing in popularity.  More examples of great book art can be found online.  Some of our favourites are by Guy Laramee , Su Blackwell and Nicholas Jones.  The prize, however, belongs to Edinburgh’s secretive (and very literary) mystery sculptor.
