Dissection of the book…

There are many types of readers. Those who re-read, over and over again, liking the way the indentations in the spine and dog-eared pages indicate a book that was enjoyed. And then there are those (me included) who cringe whenever a book spine is broken or someone dog-ears a page. Some books have earned those battle scars over the years, I will not lie. I’ve even thought of going out to buy another copy, just so that one copy is the one I can read and do whatever to and the other can sit there looking all pretty on my shelf… but I know that will earn an even greater uproar over the ever-increasing mass of books invading my room from my boyfriend who doesn’t particularly share the same opinion as me of having my own personal library of books…

However, I will concede that Brian Dettmer, is a freaking genius and even I would put one of his ‘book autopsies’ on a shelf in admiration because his art is awesome. However, not everyone shares that opinion. Check it out and you tell me, is it a waste of a good book or is it an extremely creative, powerful way to express oneself?
