“When I say to people ‘I carve books,’ they say to me, ‘Oh, what does that mean?’ If I say, ‘I make sculptures out of books,’ people think I pile them up and make towers out of them or something,” said Julia Strand.

Strand takes care to select books that would otherwise not be used/read. Carefully carving away text, she leaves just the artwork behind. See more examples at hokeystokes.
