    Looks incredibly complicated to me. Combination of art and engineering and geometry. Not at all “highly doable” by a non-artist!

    At first I thought the third photo spelled you “You 8 me”. Eating another person seemend a strage sentiment to display this way.

    There is something about this that bothers the bibliophile in me. How do you read the books after they’ve been folded like this?

      You’d need to use a copy of a book that isn’t readable or going to be read anyway. I have a friend who makes notebooks using old hardback books, but only if the pages are stained or damaged or if the book was going to be destroyed, not ‘healthy’ copies.

      It looks incredibly complex to make, to get the letters so even. I love them!
