    "Ive become impatient when people claim they don't care about clothes. They still dress every morning, and if they are going to reject fashion, they still need clothes to show it. Style rebellion is still a form of self-expression."

    New favorite artist: Brian Dettmer

    So, I picked up a copy of Hi-Fructose magazine a couple of weeks ago and founbrian dettmerd a new favorite artist whose work made my jaw drop. I have always wanted to get into altered books, and Dettmer's work has inspired me even more. (click on the image to the right to see some of his work--that is not his official page, btw, which he states in a comment left there.)

    I will refrain from rehashing everyone else's comments, but I do want to quote "Laura":

    Doesn’t it seem like this would be an excellent way to advertise/market books to encourage children and young adults to read more? It expresses visually all the excitement inside, making the books seem like boundless little universes.

    I especially like the body part ones, which make it look as though we are peering into the actual body of the book.
