This Artist Takes Books And Adds More To The Stories Between The Pages

UK-based artist Emma Taylor creates magical sculptures and figurines out of old books that she acquires from antique shops and charity drives.

Books are a gateway to another world. The art of storytelling is a gift that very few are born with, but words still offer so much meaning to life when used correctly. But UK-based artist Emma Taylor creates magical sculptures and figurines out of old books that she acquires from antique shops and charity drives. Her sculpting medium involves simple materials such as paper, scissors, and glue. Taylor loves to fashion mythical creatures, charming sceneries, and stunning scenarios. She shares these stunning paper sculptures on her website as well as on her Twitter page. Taylor also has an Etsy shop where fans of her art can purchase photographic prints and bookmarks of her sculptures. 

Check out some of her most stunning work. Images sourced from emmataylorbooks.com as well as Twitter.
