Inspiration Pad. Think You’ve Seen a Notepad? Think Again!

Irregular notebook lines
These notebooks (called Inspiration pads) were created by Brussels based design & advertising studio, “TM”, spearheaded by designer Marc Thomasset. He turned the whole concept of a notebook upside-down, and created one that used zig-zags, curls, swirls and angular lines instead of straight ones.

When I first saw these extraordinary layered glass books and rocks, I thought they were CGI computer manipulated images. How wrong I was. These photos actually show expertly-crafted pieces of sculpture art, conceptualised and made by Dusseldorf-based artist, Ramon Todo. As you’ll see in the gallery below, he has used different kinds of marble, volcanic rock and even old books to splice with highly-polished glass that effortlessly integrates with the surrounding object…

These secret and intricate Fore-Edge Paintings are from the Special Collections & University Archives at the University of Iowa, which were provided by Colleen Theisen. She shared stunning gif animations that show fore-edge painting. The technique used shows painting on the sides of old books, that can only be seen when the pages are spread out (as shown in the images below).

This really funky Watch Diary has a circle caught out of every page. So, while you are writing your next novel or simply sketching away with random thoughts, you can always keep an eye on the time.

Igloo made from Books?

Colombian sculpture artist Miler Lagos has created a really stunning exhibition entitled “Home”. The ‘sculptural work’ was installed at the MagnanMetz Gallery, where the structure was built to be self-supporting. I’ve always wanted to build an igloo, but here in England, snow never gets too deep in Winter! Still, if I had enough books…
