New favorite artist: Brian Dettmer

So, I picked up a copy of Hi-Fructose magazine a couple of weeks ago and founbrian dettmerd a new favorite artist whose work made my jaw drop. I have always wanted to get into altered books, and Dettmer's work has inspired me even more. (click on the image to the right to see some of his work--that is not his official page, btw, which he states in a comment left there.)

I will refrain from rehashing everyone else's comments, but I do want to quote "Laura":

Doesn’t it seem like this would be an excellent way to advertise/market books to encourage children and young adults to read more? It expresses visually all the excitement inside, making the books seem like boundless little universes.

I especially like the body part ones, which make it look as though we are peering into the actual body of the book.
