    8O This is nothing short of amazing. An artist named Livio De Marchi has carved a house to look like it was made entirely from books. Even the furnishings are carved in this way. Be sure to click through to the website and check out the other pictures!

          Bless you Master P. In my drowsy state it took a few seconds for that one to register, but it was worth it.

            Did you guys notice that EVERYTHING was carved from wood, including the coats on the hangers and the dishes and the comfy chairs?

            And I agree with Dee: that was a good pun, Perdix.

              Yes, it is a very impressive piece of work. I get bored just cutting up carrot sticks for lunch, so I dare not even imagine how much time and concentration went in to carving an entire house, complete with contents. The hidden kitchen units suggest that someone actually lives there though... or could do. I'm not sure I'd fancy it though.

                      I like how a house made of books still has a bookshelf!

                        Most of the guy's art is of dubious taste IMO, but damn he has some incredible pieces...the bed, yeah. and the paper boat :D I love the paper boat
                        plus of course the amount of hard work involved is enough to inspire great respect 8O
