Book Paintings

When books are your canvas…

We’ve written about Book Art and Artist’s Books on this blog before. Purchase College Library has hosted exhibitions of student Book Art in the Fall and in the Spring semester.

But here’s a new twist on book art. Designer Mike Stilkey uses walls of books as a canvas for his paintings, creating three-dimensional artistic installations.

Check out Stilkey’s fabulous online gallery of book paintings.
