Fool The Eye

I am always on the lookout for interesting book art. So, I was excited to stumble upon the amazing trompe l’oeil cover art work from Steve Wolfe. Using paper, linen, wood, paint, and ink Wolfe created fabulous copies of famous books that even included details of wear, such as tears, creases, and taped repairs. Sadly, Wolfe died in 2016 at the age of 60, but he left a wonderful body of work. You can find his “books” in museums around the world, but here are a few great examples.
