The books… not the rats ;)
Many of you may have seen one of my recent uploads… Careless Love.
I recently saw the work of this fabulous artist who cuts out images from book covers and then carefully folds them to create 3D dioramas and just knew I had to try it for myself.
I had so much fun and this is definitely an artform I would like to explore further. However, I am finding that the right type of books are really hard to come by here in sleepy little Tasmania.
So I thought I would put the call out through bubbleland to see if anyone has any 1940’s, 1950’s old pulp fiction type paperbacks that are just sitting moldering away in a box that I could buy. They aren’t worth all that much… the examples below cost me between 50cents and a dollar at second hand shops. Of course I would also cover postage.
What am I looking for? The pulpier the better basically. Any genre… western, horror, scream, love, intrigue etc.
The cover images need to be free of overlaid words, and action images are brilliant!
If you think you can help me out (and it won’t make you cry to know that I will be cutting up the covers) please bubblemail me :)
