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:

    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.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
