Paper Sculptures “From within a book”


“From within a book row on row a forest of knowledge continues to grow. While brackets and comma’s flourish and bloom, we fear the end begins to loom.” These are the words that can be found on the amazing book sculptures created by Emma Taylor. She carefully picks each book she turns into a work of art. With her careful hand, she brings out the story literally in the form of cut out pages of the book.

Reading spurs a growth in imagination and Emma’s work echoes this truth. Whether it is a dragon and knight, a new baby in a birds nest, or just a boy reading a book under a tree, Emma’s works are done beautifully. She updates her work on her Tumblr titled From within a book, where you can see most of her work and keep updated on her news.
