You Won’t Believe What These Beautiful Sculptures are Made Of

,

For some, old and heavy books are filled with so much wisdom and imagination. The moment they pick one up from the shelf and wipe away the thick layer of dust from the cover, they find it truly magical and it will hold their attention for a while.

While some are fond of reading books over and over again, others have decided to give them another life. Just like what some artists did, these people turned old dictionaries, encyclopedias, and books into stunning sculptures.

As the saying goes, “Don’t judge a book by its cover”, here are some of the most amazing sculptures you wouldn’t expect were created from books:
