Paper Art by Erica Baum

Artist Erica Baum's art objects gives poetry a whole new meaning. In her project called Dog Ear, she turns a simple fold of an old book into a piece of poetry and art combined. 

The new image is formed by the juxtaposition of the text on the two book pages; one folded down and one visible behind it.

Erica Baum explains: It looks simple but it’s actually very hard to find ones where everything comes together. In all of these projects I’m looking for something that in some sense already exists and has the potential to yield something else.
