Japanese artist Tomoko Takeda transforms books and literature into real pieces of art, in his series “Story Fragments”. He digs, carves and layered inside the pages of literature classics : Lewis Carroll, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry or also Jules Verne. Each sculpture echoes the story or the themes told in the books, on the principle that we “make books not to read, but to enjoy looking at”.
