Artist Ben Pieratt has started a fun project called Dead Bookstore where he deconstructs old books, separating all the pages, searching for interesting juxtapositions. He makes his findings available for purchase but also encourages people to go out and create their own (he put together a “how to” here). See images from Series 1 below!

“Sometimes it’s good to revisit old contact sheets. You may discover overlooked snaps. It seems that some pictures get better when they age while others turn out to have a short shelf life. This is one of many photographs I’ve taken of Muhammad Ali, some of which are well-known, some unknown. This particular image is from 1966, while Ali was training for a fight in London. Honestly, I can’t recall much more than that, except that when Ali worked the speedball, he punished it.” — Photographer Thomas Hoepker
