Brilliant Artist Transforms Books Into Works Of Nature Using The Sea

Alexis Arnold created an incredible sculptures in his Crystallized Book Series. He takes titles from all across the spectrum of literature and then leaves them in the sea to collect salt and ultimately transform into a piece of nature, no longer useful the same way a book is. 

In his statement, Arnold said, "The crystals remove the text and solidify the books into aesthetic, non-functional objects. The books, frozen with crystal growth, have become artifacts or geologic specimens imbued with the history of time, use, and memory."
