Esculturas com livros – McGill College student

Sculpture oF a McGill College student on Sherbrooke St. in Montreal, Quebec, Canada; photo by Monica Rettig.

At the corner of McGill College Avenue and Sherbrooke, you will find a sculpture well known by Montrealers … but who has really taken the time to stop to contemplate it? (Apart from us!) This sculpture by artist Cédric Loth is called Steve Jobs is dead, precisely because … it is what we can read on the character’s screen! Did you know?

Esculturas com livros – Daniel Lai

Daniels book sculptures are often adorned with a clay figure, keys and sometimes the small leather bound books. These are the small leather bound books that I create in my shop, The Nib and Quill. Many of Daniel’s works can be seen at Kenjio, his Etsy store.

He has been featured on T.V., and his work has been published in numerous books and magazines. Although his work is stunning online, you must see his work in person. Just to name a few places, his book sculptures can be found at The Bennet Gallery in Nashville, TN and The Haen Gallery in Asheville, NC.

Esculturas com livros – Cincinnati, Fountain of Big Rare Books

“This fountain, affectionately known as the “book fountain,” stands outside of the Cincinnati Main Library. According to the library, “the sculpture features water cascading over a stack of ceramic tile books, representing the free flow of information and ideas through the printed word.” Designed by Michael Frasca and dedicated in 1990, the Amelia Valerio Weinberg Memorial Fountain “was made possible by a bequest from Mrs. Weinberg.” source

Esculturas com livros – Read Reader by Terry Allen

Read Reader, Terry Allen 2003 sculpture Texas Tech campus, Lubbock, Texas.

“The artist has cast the College Edition Dictionary upside down in the figure’s hand, suggesting that to grow intellectually one must lose the fear of shedding previously held beliefs, looking lost, or being wrong.” (Texas Tech Public Art Collection Booklet)
