Looks Like a Book
I've been looking for book art, expecting to see a lot of framed illustration work, yet surprised and pleased at the variety of art I actually found.
I was also shocked by the negative reaction. Apparently some people think this type of art is disrespectful to both books and their authors. Not me!
Face it - people don't read novels often. Despite the popularity of e-readers, an extremely small percentage of the world's population has access to one.
Let's pretend for a moment that we are not reading fanatics. *gasp* If you saw a piece of art like this, would it nourish a small seed of interest within your soul? Would you be more inclined to pick up a real book? Possibly.
This is good, not bad.
What do you think?
Take a look at Off Beat Earth's post (the source of these photos) for more ideas.
