Book art: four images by Thomas Allen.

This art is simply amazing. Thomas Allen takes old books, carefully cuts the covers and positions them to create entire scenes, tiny tableaus of pulp paper and faded ink. I love the creative repurposing of common everyday things. He didn't need paint and canvas; he only needed a stack of old books, an exacto knife, and the ability to see past what's there in the images and see what could be there.
