I saw the ‘book out of stone’ picture (highlighted in red on the top image) on my Facebook timeline this morning. I was intrigued. Somebody had opined that it was PhotoShop. That did not ring true. So, I did a bit of digging. Glad I did.

Pretty amazing. I can see how it is done but I also appreciate, fully, that it is a hell of a lot of work. You are basically chiseling off layers and layers of stone. Very clever. I was impressed.

I wanted to share with YOU. Check the YouTubes. Enjoy.
