Mountain Landscape Sculpture Made From an Encyclopedia Set


Guy Laramée is a multimedia artist who dabbles in everything from sculpture to painting to video art. One of his frequently used sculptural mediums is the book, and for his sculptural piece, "Adieu," he carved a sloping mountain landscape from a 24-volume set of the Encyclopedia Britannica. He was inspired by his travels to Ecuador, Peru and Brazil when making the green mountains, grasslands and prairies out of the books.
