Stunning Book Sculptures by Guy Laramee

Most people read books on a regular basis, we gain knowledge and obtain lessons that might be applied to our own life in the near future. But designer Guy Laramee has a different point of view about these books. He uses these heavy book to create beautiful sculptures.

About Guy Laramée: Guy Laramée is an interdisciplinary artist who, in the course of his 30 years of practice, found his way through such varied and numerous disciplines as : stage writing, stage directing, contemporary music writing, musical instrument design and building, singing, video, scenography, sculpture, installation, painting and literature. He received more than 30 grants and was awarded by the Canada Council for the Arts the Joseph S. Stauffer award for musical composition. His work has been seen and heard in Canada, United States, Belgium, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and Latin America.

By transforming the edges of vintage books, he is able to create stunning mountains, glacial landscapes, plateaus, and deep valleys. Ironically his works represent the degradation of human culture. He has a strong belief that knowledge is gained by erosion, not accumulation. The following book sculptures are not the only masterpieces he hold under his belt. Feel free  check out his official website (  ) for more artwork.

World's Smallest Production Car - P50 Peel

The Peel P50 is a three-wheeled microcar originally manufactured from 1962 to 1965 by the Peel Engineering Company on the Isle of Man. The 1963 model retailed for £199 when new (about £1400 in 2010, or $2200 USD), and currently holds the record for the smallest automobile to go into production. It has no reverse gear thus proving difficult to maneuver in tight situations.

Designed as a city car, it was advertised as capable of seating "one adult and a shopping bag." The vehicle's only door was on its left side, and equipment included a single windscreen wiper and only one headlight. Standard colors were Daytona White, Dragon Red and Dark Blue.

In 2010 production of a replica version was started by a newly formed company, called Peel Engineering Ltd based in England But the original Peel Engineering Company was from the Isle of Man. Externally this car was very similar to the original but with many major mechanical differences in the suspension, steering and drivetrain. Driven by an electric motor and with a top speed of 16 km/h (10 mph), this version was produced as a display vehicle and was not road legal. In 2011 production commenced on a new road legal petrol version.
