Kelly Campbell has been sculpting books since 2011 and uses nothing more than whatever is in the pages of the book its self. The words, illustrations and page numbers. So let me take you on a journey of what I think are her 10 very best works of art…

Tin Tin: Book Sculpture


10 – Tin Tin


Growing up it was Tin-Tin and Asterix I relied on for my comic fix, now I could own my own little piece of Tin-Tin art because all these book sculptures you see here can be brought from the artists website or ETSY page. Simple click on any of the images you see here.

The Jungle Book: Book Sculpture


9 – The Jungle Book


The Jungle book is something that most of us have read. Now al those animals come to life as they not only come out of the original book, they also go into it as well!

The Cat in The Hat: Book Sculpture


8 – The Cat in The Hat


To be fair to the artist it is really difficult to get the angle of these amazing illustrations just right. Made using a pair of scissors, tweezers, and a nice sharp graft  knife I would imagine they take an awful amount of time.

Alice in Wonderland: Book Sculpture


7 – Alice in Wonderland


A lot of the artist work is believe it or not custom orders. People give her the book to animate. Knowing that, I started to wonder what book I would want done, and what pages and images?!?

Superman Comic: Book Sculpture


6 – Superman Comic


From her biggest sculpture (22″ x 28″ x 3″) of a book called “Medicine” to her smallest sculpture (6″ x 8″) which was “Arabian Nights” there is no book that she can’t turn into a work of art. I suppose all books are art in some shape or form.

The Adventures of Robin Hood: Book Sculpture


5 – The Adventures of Robin Hood


CNow this one I really enjoyed. The way the coloured characters clash with the constant black and white pages looks amazing. But it is those word vines coming out of it that is really worthy of being noted.

Aquaman Comic: Book Sculpture


4 – Aquaman


There is something slightly nerdy about the artist. From her choice of books and comics to the things that she picks to make stand out. Each work of art showing more and more of her personality.

The Walking Dead Comic: Book Sculpture


3 – The Walking Dead


I just had to include this did I. Being a avid fan of the walking dead I think I am going to have to save up and get this one for myself.

The Count of Monte Cristo: Book Sculpture


2 – The Count of Monte Cristo


Take a book that has been turned into several plays, and then turn that book into a stage play itself! Seriously, the detail, layout and design of this is flawless.

Mayberry’s Insects: Book Sculpture


1 – Mayberry’s Insects


We will all have our own opinion on which one is the best of of these ten, but for me it was this one. Take an otherwise boring research book, cut the insects out and suddenly it becomes its own little wildlife scene.
