Book Art

Brian Dettmer, a New York-based contemporary artist, uses old book, atlases, maps and the like to create works of art. Wielding the precision instruments of a surgeon - scalpels, forceps, specialized knives -  he creates works of incredible detail that have been exhibited in galleries and private collections around the world.
