I think it’s a great novelty item, but I doubt anyone would wear this all the time. It would, however, be great for certain occasions and parties, etc. Maybe in’s the old-school alternative to an iPad watch…

Book Sculptures by Guy Laramee

These book sculptures or “book carvings” were created by Canadan creative, Guy Laramee. After carving landscapes and structures into old books, Guy then paints them in varied colours. He explains further: “My work, in 3D as well as in painting, originates from the very idea that ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation. Mountains of disused knowledge return to what they really are: mountains. They erode a bit more and they become hills. Then they flatten and become fields where apparently nothing is happening.”
