Book Sculptures + Photography, by Cara Barer

Cara Barer describes her work: “I realized I owned many books that were no longer of use to me, or for that matter, anyone else. Would I ever need “Windows 95?” After soaking it in the bathtub for a few hours, it had a new shape and purpose… Each book tells me how to begin according to its size, type of paper, and sometimes contents.”

Be sure to check out Barer’s website,, as well as her blogs.
