Cool Art Of The Day

Thomas Allen’s Book Art Photography on Paintalicious.

American photographer Thomas Allen constructs witty and clever dioramas using figures cut from the covers of old pulp paperbacks. Using salacious pulp art drawing’s of the ’40s and ’50s that covered books such as ” I Married a Dead Man” and ” Marihuana Girl’, Allen constructs one set of pictures up close while obscuring another, and in the process creates a different context. Each piece is given a brand new storyline, though never quite strays from their cheeky origins.

This is some pretty creative stuff.  It’s like magazines turned into 3D images.  But Paintalicious also has lighter fare, like The Secret History Of Kiss.
