Meet Australian Nicholas Jones.
His is art like you've never seen it before.
Nicholas Jones is a book sculptor who creates amazing sculptures out of castoff books. He describes it like this: "These books were conceived, born, loved, stored, discarded, found anew, studied, cut, folded and reborn".
Finding his medium in second-hand bookstores and his inspirations everywhere, Nicholas creates stunningly precise sculptures. Either by folding, tearing or cutting, he transforms these altered books into delicate works of art. Among his tools are the scalpel and surgeon's needle, the very tools that his father uses as a surgeon.
Jones graduated with a Master in Fine Art with a degree in sculpture. He has been working with books as his chosen medium for 10 years in his company named Bibliopath. His website offers a comprehensive view of his creations and a record of his exhibitions.
