This right here is some smart art. Not just because it’s unique, but because Sydney-based artist Kylie Stillman uses books and other stacks of paper to carve her little masterpieces into. Ironically enough, many of her book and paper carvings are of different types of trees and the skill and detail at which she does such carvings is nothing short of breathtaking.
