Book Art Is Awesome: Organic Shapes

Previous book art posts have focused on a few select artists. This time, though, I wanted more.

There are just so many book artists creating beautiful organic shapes. I wanted deliciously creepy skulls and spines as well as whimsical goats and birds. Book art from galleried artists and students. Book art that was one of a kind and pieces that could be bought on Etsy.

I love how these shapes challenge our ideas of what a book should be or feel like or look like. All of them are so different, and yet, they’re all born from those bound objects with text that we adore so much.
