Malena Valcárcel 给旧的书籍新的生命！一组充满魔法的手工剪纸作品！
I love books and I have been an avid reader all my life.
I´m a paper artist and I tell my own stories using books as my canvases.
I create these sculptures from books that have been thrown away for one reason or another. Sometimes I rescue them from refuse bins, secondhand shops that can’t move them, and even libraries that incinerate unwanted or damaged books to make room for new ones. In fact, I have developed such a reputation for repurposing books that friends bring me books they no longer want or need.
I give them new lives as beautiful, incredibly unique works of art.
I can be inspired by a book I read, or maybe a specific passage of that book can inspire me to create a Book Sculpture.
My art allows you to look at books in an entirely new light and may even inspire more visually-inclined people to start reading again.
Of course it would be wonderful if more books stayed on people’s shelves rather than landing in refuse bins. But for the ones that do, I transform them into a new story in a way to make people stop and appreciate, if just for a moment, the magic of books.
