Old Books, New Art

I love old books. I can spend hours just flipping through them - smelling the pages, finding new and unusual phrases that just aren't used anymore, and laughing at the illustrations. I don't read as often as I'd like to, but I always have a book in my hand. I have been making art for my apartment for awhile now using old book pages. I repurpose the covers into journals, and use the pages in collages.

Here are some new items in my shop. I'm planning to do several paintings using old book pages, like the ones below. Just need to make a stop at Hobby Lobby for some more canvases. Oh how I love Hobby Lobby.
