Now for Something Completely Different!

I love to browse through Craft Gawker (and Food Gawker, for that matter!), and I just recently had one of my own photographs featured on their site yesterday. It's a great site with wonderful eye candy to browse through, and it's how I discovered this truly unique and talented duo.

Veronica and Isaac run the Book of Art shop on Etsy and their products are like nothing I've ever seen before.

They take books, all different kinds of books, and turn them into beautiful 3D art by folding the interior pages. Kind of like full-book origami.

In this case, it's hard to describe but the results are truly eye-catching and a picture is definitely worth a few thousand words! Just take a look at the picture to the left to see what I mean.

Isaac is the artist who creates these amazing pieces of art and his wife Veronica runs their shop on Etsy. If you really want a truly unique gift to amaze the book lovers and readers in your life, I'd definitely recommend checking Book of Arts out!
