Book Art

I love books.  I cherish them.  I love the way they look on my shelves and the way the paper feels under my fingertips.

But this artist has found a new way to love them.  German creator Dorisse can turn ordinary paper products into beautiful jewelry and, my favorite, book sculptures!
I will never give up reading the real thing, but I also love the idea of immortalizing my favorites as works of art--more than they already are, that is.

What do you think?  Reverent to the work or destroying it?
