Kerry Miller Reimagining the Book

It seems a little sad to cut up beautifully illustrated books, but I rather like the way Kerry Miller creates her work. She gives forgotten books a new lease of life. She alters them and concentrates their personality into three dimensional pop-up 'stages'. She works on lots if different books, but I thought I'd post some examples of her natural history sets.

Karen Miller describes her work "as a means of distilling the essence of a book, whilst releasing the images and allowing them to reach a new audience. She views it as a collaboration, a partnership with the past, giving new purpose to old volumes that may otherwise never see the light of day or simply end up in recycling".
