You may remember Kelli Anderson’s beautiful paper record player wedding invitation from a while back, which included a needle in the design so that when spun, you could hear an original track, SO CLEVER!

Well, I had the pleasure last Friday of checking out this new installation she has intricately crafted over at the New York Public Library. She, long with the help of several friends, has taken 40 books, selected by Brainpicking’s Maria Popova, and repurposed them into large scale versions of themselves in, yep you guessed it, PAPER!

She has definitely added the same finesse and detailing to these books as she did to the paper record player. Upon looking closely at them, everything, even the text for each book is cut out of paper. Some of these paper crafted books showcasing 3D elements for more depth like the lion on the “Creature” book and I loved seeing the paint in 3D on the “Zen in the Art of Writing” book. A very beautiful display to behold in person and I highly recommend checking it out! Below there is also a video and if you are in the area, please go and check it out at the New York Public Library Bookstore.
