Cool things to do with books (besides read them)

October 12, 2007

Via Blue Tea, two artists that create miniature dioramas using books as their medium.
Su Blackwell‘s scenes are part Joseph Cornell, part fairy tale (not that Cornell’s works aren’t themselves fairy tale).
Thomas Allen uses pulp covers in much the same way, though I’d say his work is more humorous (perhaps inherently so, due to his medium?).

I love both these artists. Check them out.
