Flying Houses | by Laurent Chehere.

You may have already seen this, as so many note-worthy blogs I follow have long since featured this series.

French photographer Laurent Chehere curates a collection full of of whimsical and surreal images in his series, “Flying Houses”. Photographs of urban and suburban Parisian homes are seen floating in the sky alongside clouds, flocks of migrating birds, tethered by electrical lines.

My absolute favourites have got to be the circus tent and what looks like a floating Noah’s Ark-home, but the rest are pretty great too. They have a great amount of detail if you study them closely, and some have a background story as well. Be sure to check out more of the collection on Laurent’s portfolio.

Book Arts Series | Miniature Oil Paintings on Copper and Steel in Altered Books  by Joseph Decamillis.

Miniature postage stamp-sized oil paintings and text additions on copper plates added onto the covers of old discarded books. Each painting is inserted into the middle of a carved niche, and highlights elements of the story. The book is then sealed shut.

Joe DeCamillis, creator of the Book Arts Series, is an artist, poet, and writer. His mixed media book art can be purchased via his website.
