Seattle-based artist Isobelle Ouzman carves intricate 3D illustrations into discarded books found in dumpsters, recycling bins, and local thrift shops. According to Ouzman, it was her love of reading that inspired her to embark on her project, adding that it’s her way of making them “mean something once more.”
She’s cutting and pasting the books into layered fairy tale scenes that amaze us. Her whimsical and monochromatic environments can be purchased via her Etsy shop for around 400 € per piece.
