Amazing Sculptures Formed With Folded Book Pages

Over the past 20 years, Vermont-based artist Luciana Frigerio has developed an extensive black and white photography portfolio. However, recently, she has turned her attention to paper art, using books as the foundation for her unique Folded Book Sculptures. She says, “I cut, fold, and play with books and paper whenever I can.”

For the original artwork, Frigerio uses recycled books and precisely folds each page into the desired letters, using either Times or Helvetica as the font. Messages of love, song lyrics, and words of inspiration grow out of the center of each book in clever, eye-catching designs. Single words like ‘yes’ sit alongside monograms or longer messages like ‘the best is yet to be.’ The specially crafted designs are filled with lots of joy and happiness–one man even used the artwork for a marriage proposal, setting the books up on the shelf in a bookstore and surprising his bride-to-be as he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him!
