Book art by Isaac Salazar. The pages are painstakingly folded with a few slices here and there. AMAZING.
holy crap this just blew my mind!!!
hahhahah great comment! I agree.
I know some artists that have done interesting things with books, but this is pretty damn rad.
I think most of the words the artist chose are pretty cliche/lame, but perhaps they are supposed to be? hmm. Cool idea though.
i can see where you’re coming from, on the other hand what words would you like to see instead?
This is not Chelsea’ s job to come up with better words but the artist’s. She made a valid observation, that’ s all.. and people are free to give it a thought or dismiss it. I don’ t like how any form of criticsm has to justify itself.
this site exists to encourage artists first and foremost. so yes you do have to justify your criticism. it is not a right to offer criticism, it is a privilege.
Even if you view the words as cliche/lame the craftsmanship in the typography is quite amazing in this unique and most likely awkward to create format. It is easy to see the joy that could come from accurately creating each letter.
I agree, maybe it was intentional. It would be great to see illustrations done this way, the book itself contains enough words already;-) Fantastic job though, technically well executed.
Wow! Salazar’s work is amazing, working with books myself this work is truly inspirational!
Wow. This is the best book folding I have ever seen.
These are outstanding, I love the “read” one.
holy hell. amazing.
these would be much better if they didn’t say things like “love” and “dream”
this is beautiful and just amazing. i love it.
Nice creations..Love the “Read” the most..

AMAZING. Read and Create are my favorites. I love it when people come up with so different and creative things.
We don´t know what are the titles/topics of the books, maybe the election of the words had something to do with the idea of the book. Anyway, this is amazing.
or what books bring to your life. i interpret it like that and that’s why it works. the words are not lame, but significant and the folding is just smart ass-y. great work!
Create, Dream, Sunny, Read; Wow Amazing!!!
