Dead Bookstore

Ben Pieratt's new project – Dead Bookstore – is such an exceedingly simple and elegant idea, it seems odd that it hasn't been done before. Basically, he breaks signature-bound books down into individual sheets and looks for interesting unintentional compositions that can be framed as art. Images that would've been pages apart in the book now lay side-by-side, contrasting and interrupting each other. The results are quite beautiful – I may start plundering charity shops for potential cadavers to disassemble.
