Su Blackwell creates these beautiful sculptures out of old books, mostly ones she finds in second-hand book shops! Each sculpture is created using paper only from the book with which it is shown. You can see more of these amazing pieces on Su’s website. There is also an old post on My Love For You (where I got these great pictures!) that has a real nice interview of Su.
Under the names Lizette Greco or grecolaborativo, the Greco family of southern California create these awesome stuffed animals! Using the drawings of their son and daughter, Mom and Dad create the plushies, representing the drawings as accurately as possible. It’s a family collaboration! They make up little stories for each of the animals too! You can see everything they have made right here, and if you like something so much you want to have it for yourself, they also have a little shop!

Here are two that I have been reading recently.

I already loved this song, but I just saw the video for it today, and I love it! It’s so cute and kind of retro looking…
I’m loving this design for the Shanghai Expo 2010 by Polish architects Wojciech Kakowski, Natalia Paszkowska and Marcin Mostafa. The design is inspired by Polish folk art paper cutouts.
There seems to be some controversy in the comments on Dezeen regarding how or if the physical building will turn out. I personally just enjoy the concept and the images!
