Well, this is different! And totally cool.
Luciana Frigeri takes "recycled" books and does something magical to them to transform them into amazing works of art. I have no clue how, exactly, she does this, and I'm happy about that. They're truly wondrous creations — and, as with all magic, part of the fun is not knowing how it's done.
And they're remarkably affordable: $45–$100. Pretty great for a dazzling gift.
Oh, and she's also a superb photographer.
