Interview with the Book Surgeon (7 pics) - My Modern Metropolis

Interview with the Book Surgeon (7 pics) - My Modern Metropolis

The last few days of February brought hundreds of thousands of visitors to My Modern Met thanks to the incredible work of Brian Dettmer, aka The Book Surgeon. In fact, even bookstores could appreciate Dettmer's incredible art with Harvard Books recently tweeting, "I suppose we don't necessarily recommend you do this to your books, but WOW. It's the work of the 'book surgeon.'"

We got in touch with Dettmer to ask him a few questions about how his style has evolved over the years. (On a side note, the artist said at the beginning of his email to us: "My inbox is flooded from the resent surge in blogs - the recent wave all started by your site - thanks)!" Read our interview with him below as you enjoy more of his fantastic work.

"The collector is a person who has been bitten by the collecting bug. It is a person who is passionate about a certain item almost to the distraction of everything else. Their spouse, family, and friends have become aware of their position in relationship to the beloved collection."
