Brian Dettmer's Altered Books

Check out Brian Dettmer's flickr collection of altered books.  I'm torn as to whether or not this kind of thing is kosher--on the one hand, there's something so beautiful about a book turned into a work of art.  On the other hand, he's destroying books in the process.  He's chosen aesthetics over utility, and I'm not sure how I feel about that from a philosophical standpoint.

But they are freaking cool.
