This Woman Makes Incredible Art From Discarded Books

Please Share This Page:

Meet Malena Valcárcel, a Spanish artist who creates beautiful masterpieces using recycled books. The idea of books being cut up and transformed into art pieces may trigger some degree of outcry about desecration. However, you will find a certain beauty in the second life given by Malena to the pages of the old books that she transforms into something new such as mini sculptures, jewelry, and wall hangings.


There are many artists who specialize in making trash into artistic treasures. One is American artist Lin Evola-Smidt who melts guns to create statues of angels. Another is Belgian artist Wim Delvoye who reworks used car and tractor tires and sculpts them into masterpieces. Malena repurposes books that she rescues from refused bins, second-hand shops, and even libraries.

The book artist often takes inspiration from nature and everyday life. Her fascination with the way beauty can be found anywhere is manifested in her artworks which feature trees, clouds, birds, butterflies, and flowers.

Malena grew up in the Canary Islands and never received formal training as an artist. Her paper artworks are products of experimentation, which has helped in developing her talent and skill as a paper artist. For Malena, the experience of simply cutting and shaping paper is a continuous source of amazement.

Some of Malena’s pieces will both delight and make you want to cry. One is a necklace made from the sheet music of a Spanish love song. What else anniversary gift can beat that? Another features a house with a plant poking out of its chimney. It looks like it was taken from the pages of a Dr. Seuss book or “Alice in Wonderland. ” Malena’s creations are just magical!

According to the artist, some of her pieces use recycled materials, which make her works unique and distinct. She adds that using these materials is also an ethical statement.
The tiny magical scenes that are lit from within are some of Malena’s famous pieces. Malena uses lighting to make her mini sculptures come to life. They are absolutely beautiful, enchanting, and mesmerizing. Everything is just exquisitely executed and marvelously created.

The paper artist is an avid reader of books all her life. Discarded books have become her platform for creating unique pieces that both inspire and enthrall those who have seen them.


Malena has a website where you can view her other artworks. You can also follow her on Facebook where you can see what magical creation she puts up next.

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions.
