    Today the Department of Beguiling Book Art explores the exquisite work of New York-based artist Brian Dettmer, a self-described Book Surgeon, who uses knives, tweezers and surgical tools to transform old books into amazing, multi-layered sculptures. Taking one page at a time, Dettmer painstakingly carves out illustrations and text from old medical journals, dictionaries, atlases, encyclopedias and other beautifully illustrated books. Nothing is ever added or rearranged, only removed. The pages and spines of the books are manipulated to further shape the book sculptures. He also combines multiple books, folding, bending, rolling and stacking them to create larger and even more complex sculptural forms.

    Dettmer views his artwork as an intensive collaboration with the existing material:

    “Images and ideas are revealed to expose alternate histories and memories, ” explains Dettmer in the artist’s statement. “My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception.”

    Visit Brian Dettmer’s website to check out more of his astonishing book book sculptures.

    Permaculture Design Principles
    Companion Planting
    Many of these relationships are fairly general. The best results come from creating diversity by using a variety of herbs and ornamental plants alongside the edible crops planted in the garden.
    Some Companion Plants are:
    • Basil helps repel flies and mosquitoes
    • Birch leaves encourage compost fermentation
    • Borage in the strawberry patch will increase the yield
    • Catnip repels fleas, ants and rodents
    • Caraway helps breakdown heavy soils
    • Chamomile deters flies and mosquitoes and gives strength to any plant growing nearby
    •  Chives grown beneath apple trees will help to prevent apple scab; beneath roses will keep away aphids and blackspot.
    • Elderberry a general insecticide, the leaves encourage compost fermentation, the flowers and berries make good wine.
    • Fennel repel flies and ants
    • French Marigold root secretions kill nasty nematodes (not the beneficial ones) and will repel white fly amongst tomatoes.
    • Garlic helps keep aphids away from roses
    • Hyssop attracts cabbage white moth keeping brassicas free from infestation
    • Mint repels cabbage white moth. Dried and placed with clothes will repel clothes moth.
    • Nasturtium secrete a mustard oil, which many insects find attractive and will seek out, particularly the cabbage white moth. Alternatively, the flowers repel aphids and the cucumber beetle. The climbing variety grown up apple trees will repel codling moth.
    • Pyrethrum will repel bugs if grown around the vegetable garden
    • Rosemary repels carrot fly
    • Sage protects cabbages from cabbage white moth
    • Tansy (Tanacetum, not Senecio) repels moths, flies and ants. Plant beneath peach trees to repel harmful flying insects. Tansy leaves assist compost fermentation.
    • Wormwood (Artemesia, not Ambrosia) although it can inhibit the growth of plants near it, wormwood does repel moths and flies and keeps animals off the garden.

    Some compatible vegetables are:

    • Beetroot: Onions, Lettuce, Cabbage, Silverbeet
    • Cabbages: Beans, Celery, Beetroot, Onions, Potatoes
    • Cauliflower: Celery
    • Celery & Celeriac: Chives, Leeks, Tomatoes, Dwarf Beans
    • Carrots: Lettuce, Peas, Leeks, Chives, Onions, Cucumbers, Beans
    • Broadbeans: Potatoes, Peas, Beans
    • Tomatoes: Asparagus, Parsley, Broccoli, Sweet Basil, Carrots
    • Sweet Corn: Potatoes, Peas, Beans

    "You see, there are still faint glimmers of civilization left in this barbaric slaughterhouse that was once known as humanity. Indeed that’s what we provide in our own modest, humble, insignificant… Oh, fuck it."

    Yes, it’s the fluffy Miramax version of the very real battle I and so many other Recovering Catholics struggle through — what all us bourgeois encounter and react viscerally to in Rimbaud  — Stifling, Trifling, Mock Morality vs Exuberance, Passion, a more thorough exploration of the intricacies of what is right and wrong. Color versus darkness, flavor vs blandness, freedom vs regime, the world vs the village. Before I had words or a map to navigate my feelings, I knew I didn’t belong in my provincial suburbs. It took a trek to the deep hippie woods to figure out exactly how to get back to the city and truly explore the depths of myself.  I’m still finding things, I’m still getting illuminated to elevating revelations. It’s a struggle, all those years of oppression. Shaking off the layers of them, getting through the superficial ones, going beyond what the surface of things developed. Finding and delving into terrifying fiery pits previously unknown. I’d rather this, though, than everything Alfred Molina’s character struggles with.
