5 Delightful Book Cut-Outs, by Thomas Allen

These images are from a series called “Beautiful Evidence,” by Thomas Allen.

“Most of my summer,” Allen writes, “was devoted to paging through (and tearing pages from) the old science books, encyclopedias and primary readers that I’ve been collecting/hoarding since graduate school–turning my tidy workspace into a total disaster! After a solid week of making cutouts, I spent another four arranging (pinning/gluing/taping), photographing, stitching-together and color–correcting the overlapping exposures of 32 new images…Twelve of these will adorn the walls and mark the opening of [The Foley Gallery‘s] new location.”
