We are made of our Childhood books

Clever Ad Campaign Features Sculptures of Children Made Entirely from Books.

Working with the YCBE(Yokohama City Board of Education), a Dentsu Tokyo creative team led by creative director Miharu Matsunaga, has come up with a fantastic ad campaign designed to bring librarians back into libraries. To represent the notion that books shape who we are, Matsunaga and his team created sculptures of children made entirely from books. The sculptures were then photographed in various classrooms and libraries accompanied by short inspirational phrases like “We are made of our childhood books”

Adorable Book Sculpture of Matilda, The Roald Dahl Story

Su Blackwell, the London-based artist who we previously featured here and here, has just come out with a book sculpture and it’s absolutely adorable. Commissioned for a client whose mother was instrumental in bringing Matilda the Musical to the stage, this work is cut from pages of Roald Dah’s book and incorporates the illustration of Matilda by notable illustrator Quentin Blake. In it, you see Matlida standing on top of a large stack of books, reaching high in the sky for even more books. Love how she incorporates the trees and the lit house.
