Having a love for old patterned Readers Digest books because they look so pretty we were excited when we saw them being used for book carvings. Kylie Stillman has carved to scale bonsai trees into the side of a stack of books and a range of birds into open books.
We really like the contrast between the bright inner covers and the layers of words. Kylie has also done some giant versions of the bonsais out of plywood and carving on venetian blinds. See her website here for more of her work.
