Ever since the days the inventions of the TV, Kindle, and iPad came around, things haven't been looking good for bookstores or for real books. Some of todays artists, along with some of the greatest artists of all time, are working to repurpose these cherished objects. It's such a (pun intended) novel idea, right? From visually telling a story to appearing sculptural, books are the new paint (for some artists at least).

Enjoy Awesome Artworks Made From Books. It's shocking what artists can do with the books that used to be collecting dust on their shelves.
