"Australian book sculptor Nicholas Jones aims at highlighting the poetic nature of the book as a form. From his tiny Melbourne studio, he stacks, folds, tears, cuts and sews book leaves, transforming books into works of art, small sculptures that question the way books are read. Like a surgeon examining and reorganizing body tissue, armed with a scalpel, Jones readdresses the book’s tissue – paper – dissecting unwanted books, casting a new light on books as an everyday commodity."
