I realize this has nothing to do with American History, but wow! A genius and slightly mad at the same time:

  1. Wow!! Hadn't seen this before.

    I was reminded of what used to be called "found poetry" & "found art":

    "found poetry" was where, as an example, a news blip could be converted into a poem

    "found art" where, as an example, an old wooden kitchen table could be sanded down and used as a "canvas" for a wood carving such as a pastoral scene


    There is no end to the creativity some people can resort to!

  2. Looks like literary "steampunk."

  3. There are people in the world who look at a book differently than we do, that's for sure!
