The art of ‘book sculptor’ Emma Taylor, who tells new stories with old books rescued from charity and second hand shops.

Using only glue, scissors and the pages of the books she carves, Taylor also themes her sculptures in keeping with the subject matter of the books they’re made from, ie. a garden scene emerging from ‘An Introduction to Botany’ and Italian houses hewn from ‘The Story of Venice’.
