Michigan Monsoon Meanderings--Book Art

With it raining more on than off for the past seventy-two plus hours here in northern Michigan (more for the down-staters), its been a great time to read favorite blogs and wander from link to link online.  Travis Jonker of 100 Scope Notes in his post yesterday linked to the Colossal Art & Design site for these one of a kind Custom Stacked Book Side Tables.  They are the creation of Jane Dandy.  What book lover wouldn't be happy with this?!

In viewing this unique art another link popped up to the Book Origami work of Isaac Salazar.  As stated in his profile on Flickr:  I use simple math and an exacto knife, along with lots of time. It takes me anywhere from 3 days for the simpler styles to 2 weeks for the more complex styles....I like to take a book that would otherwise end up in a landfill and turn it into art. 
He graciously gave me permission to share this graphic with my readers.  His full gallery filled with amazing visuals can be viewed by clicking on the link above.
