It’s not easy being a unicorn, and this poor guy has had it worst. Why Unicorn Drinks by C. W. Moss is a book with a hilarious descriptions that seem to be forcing Mr. Unicorn towards alcoholism. Don’t blame this guy though, he doesn’t have it easy. These illustrations show a few problems of Mr. [...]
Illustrations by British artist Jonathan Wolstenholme has a love for old books, and it shows in this series entitled Books on Books. The illustrations show a world where books read books, play cards and chess, and have a social life of their own. A book reading a book while writing a book is quite an [...]
Illustrator Joey Spiotto uses the book art of classic Little Golden Books and mashes them up with popular video games to create these prints that are both quite contemporary and nostalgic. Available on his Etsy shop.
For his series Built of Books artist Frank Halmans went the literal way, giving stacked vintage books the general appearance of houses. They’re complete with doors and windows and if viewed merely as a silhouette, they might as well give the impression of a “real” house. We’re pleased to see that the opposite is true [...]
Artist Guy Laramee (previously) carves the intricate, some might even say mysterious, caverns into volumes of books. Whatever mysteries these caverns might hold, we’re just happy there seems to be a light at the end of every tunnel. For his style, and even for a bit of inspiration, Laramee looks back to the literary classic [...]
Carrying on with his amazing style and skill of carving landscapes out of books, Guy Laramee has a new set to show. His skill just keeps getting better and better!
Artist Cara Barer folds, creases, twists and turns old books and manuals to transform them into these wonderful settings that are reminiscent of some patterns we’re quite used to see. The arrangement of paper and books adds beautifully to the visual goodness.
Ah yes, a warm place built on wisdom. Book Igloo by Miler Lagos looks like a lovely place to spend time in. Only, you probably don’t want to take out a book to read.
This is lovely, and totally worth the academy award it received. The film was made by Moonbot Studios.
How cool are these prints of objects reading books! Marc Johns has quite a lovely set there.
We could stack books into big piles, but making them a suitable candidate for construction would require the genius of Matej Kren. The artist stacked thousands of books, using them as bricks to create a structure that could pass off as a building. It isn’t some half-assed “building” either, this structure includes 30 feet high [...]
We don’t quite approve of this, but seeing that reading has become something of a dying art, a lot of people are content in describing the joys of a book to the simple and unintelligent blah blah blah. This project by Gogelmogel is a book, with the only content in it being the word “blah” [...]
What once used to be a humble 1979 Ford Falcon, is now a tank. And tank way more powerful than any of those combat vehicles, if you look at it with a philosophical eye. There isn’t much left of the fusion after the addition of the welded frame.
Being a spy and living the James Bond life requires some dedication, like reading a book on spy stuff. The book touches a number of topics, ranging from the relatively simple eavesdropping to more “advanced” stuff like code breaking, cyber warfare and spreading misinformation. Costs ~$8.
The creator of this fantastic bath tub, Vanessa Mancini calls it the bath of knowledge. And we’re inclined to agree, primarily because of the generous amount of books covering the tubs boundaries. While that collection would certainly not make a bathtub actually usable, Vanessa managed to get it done by fitting in the deconstructed books [...]
