amazing work by abigail reybolds' ... folded photography.

"I collect second hand tourist guides. Within the century of printed photographs that they contain, I search for plates that have been printed at similar scale, taken from a similar view point.

When I find a near match between book plates, I cut and fold the pages into a new single surface. The dates written on each work give the publication dates of the books I have used. Whichever has been used as the 'base' image is listed first.

The patterns I use to cut the two book pages into one single surface are such that all of both sheets of paper are preserved. If you were to fold all the flaps in or out, the entirety of each image will be seen. The act of folding one image into the other pushes them out into three dimensions in a bulging time ruffle."

alphabeasties: and other amazing types

what a great book, animals brought to life by the alphabet.

past the fiction and romance novels ... and straight for the children's books i go. i can't even remember the last time i read a book that didn't have full page illustrations in it. (i know that's sad).one day i hope to find the time to write a children's book of my own (my bucket list gets longer and longer everyday)

just fell in love

i recently purchased a children's book by carin berger, every illustration is like a work of art. she uses an assortment of cut paper, used clothing catalogs, and old ticket stubs. carin has been awarded the 2006 founder’s award from the society of illustrators, the best of show from 3 x 3 magazine for the children’s book show, and the scandiuzzi children’s book award. her newest book, the little yellow leaf, was named a new york times best illustrated children's book of 2008 ... over all she is an amazing author and artist!
