We’ve shown you artists who do amazing things with books before, but nothing quite like the book folding art we bring you today from deviantART member schaduwlichtje. Based in the Netherlands, she’s developed a high level of skill at folding and creasing the pages to create just the right design for her pieces. As the charity she volunteers at receives a huge amount of donated books that they cannot possibly all sell, she saw the opportunity to create something beautiful with them rather than watch as they were discarded. The process can be quite time consuming, with each fold needing her careful attention to achieve the proper look. She’s even gone as far as to use chopsticks to give her book art’s pages just the right curl. If you’d like to see more of her work, follow along on her deviantART page.
