Book carvings

I learned about "book-carving" by watching the inspiring TED talk Old books reborn as intricate art by Brian Dettmer.

Unlike drawing, painting, and collage where we add material, with book carving, like sculpture, we remove material. I was very curious about the process, so I tried, and here are my first book carvings.
