Abigail Reynolds folds like a champ.

October 27, 2011

This work belongs to one Miss Abigail Reynolds. I think they look super cool, but the site I got it off actually goes into a bit more detail than that, so I copy-pasted so you can have more infomation on these wonderful pieces.

The series consists of collages comprised of found book pages sourced from atlases, encyclopedias and guidebooks. Reynolds scours used bookshops and flea markets to recover images of landmarks, monuments and landscapes printed at a similar scale and shot from approximate vantage points by separate photographers at different points in time. The two corresponding bookplates are merged through a series of incisions and folds, which result in an undulating three-dimensional honeycomb like surface in which the entirety of each page is preserved.
