You could call them creepy or scary, but the word you’re actually looking for is fantastic. Canadian artist MilleCuirs describes the books on his Etsy page as “Handmade leather grimoires, blank books and journals”. Many of the creations do take an aspect that may be described as creepy or scary. That comes with the territory, and likely is the effect the artist aims for in these painstaking and meticulous creations.
Photographer duo Moreno Monti and Matteo Tranchellini show just how interesting chicks can be, in their 190 page book Chicken, featuring 85 high-resolution chicken portraits.

It is tough to believe this is a pencil drawing, not a photo. However, those doubts can be let to rest after seeing that the artist has also uploaded a video of the process.

Artist Gaku carves exquisite patterns on a variety of fruits and vegetables. Food carving is called mukimono in Japan, and apparently, carved food is often served as a side dish. The artist has to be rather quick with his hands as oxidation sets in the moment the fruit is cut, and discolored edibles don’t look this picturesque.
For his series Flatland II, Turkish artist Aydin Büyüktaş has created dizzying and distorted views of American landscapes. It took the photographer two months to scout and plan for the locations, then another month and 10,000 miles of travelling across the USA to capture the shots. Aydin captured 18-20 images for each shot, then stitched them together to create collages that stretch into the sky and fold onto themselves.
