To create these magnificent sculptures, Whitfill starts by cutting out pages from each of the repurposed books, in order to form wedges that will fit together in a wheel formation. The books themselves are encased in a protective resin and, after being manipulated, they are secured to a metal sculpture base. Once this process is complete, what results is a unique work of art that is fit for readers and art-lovers alike.
