I love books. I’m a longtime biblioholic, in point of fact. As a child, I was known to spend time browsing the dictionary and the encyclopedia for fun. I sometimes think it would be fun to do that again.
CollageOrama has an Etsy site that could allow me to have just that sort of good time again, but with a twist. CollageOrama takes dictionaries that are about to be destroyed and upcycles them. Images of pages are printed on recycled paper and further images superimposed. I quite love the dress form above, but there are plenty of other fun images to choose from, such as this rather glorious Macaroni penguin
… or Marilyn Monroe, a T-rex skeleton, or dozens of other funny, charming, kitschy, or curious images. At $6.99 each, they’re quite a bargain, too!
Or are they inspiration?
