Guy Laramee's Book Landscape

If you think print is dead, you need to check out these incredibly vibrant landscapes made by Montreal artist Guy Laramee using old books. His vision and attention to detail yield gorgeously dreamy results. Here’s a detail shot of the piece above:

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.

    Is there anywhere that he documents his process? I think his book landscapes are amazing.

      Hi Sam, I was wondering the same thing, but hadn’t been able to find any documentation. Whatever it is, it’s no doubt time consuming, but I’d love to know!

        Looks like a CNC driven cutter did the work. The actual cutting wouldn’t be time consuming, just the setup on a computer.
