random: mini book cutouts

today i came across this picture on the blog lottie loves & was immediately intruiged.
it's a pocket book garden by printmaker kyoko imazu & it looked absolutely enchanting.

after a few clicks, i found her etsy site & blog, & i became mesmorized with the 2 other little book cutouts she has for sale.  here are a few photos of what can be found inside...

incredible!  truly pieces of art.

oh & you should definitely read her little stories that accompany the books, found here & here.

~ i love the idea of carrying a whole other world around with you in your shirt pocket, hidden in a little book binding. ~

  3. Wow, that's amazing! I love book art!

  4. They have a Kara Walker feel to them, minus the gruesomeness and undertones of oppression her work has, but indeed truly beautiful!
