Great book artist from Michigan Thomas Allen erects three-dimensional illustrations via figures cut and fold up from old books. Allen creates vivid illustrations using figures cut and folded from old books. Inspired by his childhood experiences with pop-up books and view master reels, Allen gently cuts around the shape of his characters, physically releasing them from their two dimensional surface. Very simple yet extremely clever. The notion of illustrating books, making pop ups from books, is a delightful idea and, as you can see from the images, results in some smart ideas. If you haven’t seen some of his earlier pieces made from vintage pulp fiction novels, head on over to Foley Gallery for a real treat. you see these kind of work and comments about this post.
