Isaac Salazar – beautiful book art

Isaac Salazar uses simple techniques – a tuck here, a fold there – to turn second-hand books into works of art. It’s ingenious and beautiful. I want to try it. Be sure to look at his Flickr stream.

“I see my work as a way to display a meaningful piece of art onto a book that would otherwise sit on a shelf and collect dust; it’s also my way of recycling a book that might otherwise end up in a landfill. The words or symbols I use are drawn from anything that invokes inspiration or encouragement, such as “Read”, “Dream” and the Recycle symbol. If my work also makes people look at a book and even art in a new light then the piece has done its job“.

(another one from BOOOOOOOM, but it did blow my socks off)

Want!
