A couple months have passed since we last paid a visit to Department of Awesome Book Art. These beautiful book sculptures were created by UK-based mixed media and collage artist Kerry Miller. Using old, discarded books as her subjects, Miller gives new life to each abandoned volume by painstakingly carving out and arranging the illustrations found within them. Sometimes she also uses inks or watercolors to enhance those illustrations.

“My work is a means of distilling the essence of a book, whilst releasing the images and allowing them to reach a new audience. I view it as a collaboration, a partnership with the past, giving new purpose to old volumes that may otherwise never see the light of day or simply end up in recycling. As technology threatens to replace the printed word, there has never been a better time to reimagine the book.”

Visit Kerry Miller’s website to check out more of her bibliotastic artwork.

Take a look at these incredibly tiny illustrations of the American West by California-based artist Sam Larson. Now go grab a penny and then look at the drawings again to really appreciate just how small they are. Our favorite piece is the Bigfoot scene. That may be the tiniest Sasquatch we’ve ever seen.

Larson posts all of his marvelous miniature illustrations on his Instagram account. Follow him there to see more.

1. Dammit Archie McPhee, do you *purposefully* make excellent posts about miniatures just so that I will reblog them?

2. So many awesome people in the world are named Sam. My BFF, for example, and this guy.

3. Dude, woah. These are incredible. My fave is the house on the cliff.

You know, we always called each other good fellas. Like you said to, uh, somebody, “You’re gonna like this guy. He’s all right. He’s a good fella. He’s one of us.” You understand? We were good fellas. Wiseguys.

  • Must be following hoorayforcalicocritters! Like and reblog THIS POST as many times as you want, (as many times as you can!) and five winners will be chosen at random.
    The first winner chosen will choose the prize of the 5 they like best, and the second chosen will choose from the four remaining prizes, and so on.
    I chose five prizes of equal cuteness and value, so PLEASE no being sad if you are the fifth winner and the prize you wanted most is not available. If the fifth winner decides they do not want the prize they are given, a sixth winner will be chosen and will receive that prize. 

I’ll message the winners through their inbox. You MUST be comfortable with giving me an address to ship your prize to! 

Prizes: 

  • First Prize: Calico Critter Baby Carrying Case! these cases are collectibles and there are just a few designs- this design is a tiny lamb on a train. There are no Calico Critter lamb families, sheep are vintage, only found through the original company Sylvanian Families. This set is super cool. AND cute, very cute. 
  • Second Prize: Two boxes of Pocky! (chocolate and strawberry) They’re delicious chocolate covered biscuit sticks from Japan. 
  • Third Prize: Dangly Silver Snowflake Earrings! The snowflakes are about the size of a quarter, and much thicker than they look inside the box. I have a pair myself, and they’re one of my favorites. 
  • Fourth Prize: Webkinz Plush Elephant! This cute little elephant is 6 1/2 inches tall and very soft. Just look at those ears! (comes with Webkinz secret codes)
  • Fifth Prize: Blue “Retro Phone” Handset! This plugs into the headphone jack of your phone and lets you talk on the phone in a fun and comfy way. You can still use every part of your phone while using it, and the company boasts it cuts down on phone radiation your skin absorbs by 99%…so that’s great!

For an incredibly kawaii series entitled Invertebrate Sleep Habits, Japanese artist Hiné Mizushima (previously featured here) created this awesomely cute octet of needle felted sea creatures, each of which is tucked into an adorable little bed.

They were created for In The Palm of Your Hand, the January 2014 art exhibition at the EMP Collective in Baltimore, Maryland.
