Book Origami By Isaac Salazar

Isaac Salazar, an accountant born in Texas, brings back life to old books by creating interesting pieces of book origami. It’s his way of recycling a book that might otherwise end up in a landfill.

Isaac has been creating these for almost 2 years now. His books first started out simple and have recently become more intricate.

“I see my work as a way to display a meaningful piece of art onto a book that would otherwise sit on a shelf and collect dust… The words or symbols I use are drawn from anything that invokes inspiration or encouragement, such as “Read”, “Dream” and the Recycle symbol. If my work also makes people look at a book and even art in a new light then the piece has done its job,” says Isaac.
