無類の本好きは古今東西にいますが、James Trevino(ジェームス・トレヴィーノ)さんという24歳の男性はその中でもすこーし変わったタイプかも。インスタグラマーならぬ“ブックスタグラマー”を自称する彼がインスタグラムにアップし続けているのは、たくさんの本を使った美しいアート写真

本って読むだけじゃなく、こんな使い道もあっただなんて……! 彼のときにポップでときに壮麗なブックアート写真は人気を呼び、現在フォロワーは1万6000人近くにも達しています。

Who is your favorite Hogwarts teacher? 📚 Why another Harry Potter themed pic you ask? Well, first of all, you can never have too many HP themed pics! Second, I just wanted to show off this awesome Quidditch hoodie the guys at @funidelia sent me. WHO DA CAPTAIN??? JAMES DA CAPTAIN! As for my favorite teacher: I would love to learn from Fake Moody (just cuz I am evil👿) but from a reader's standpoint no one beats McGonagall. 📚 How is your weekend going, guys? 📑 📑 📑 #funidelia #funideliamerchandise #whprelax #rainbow #harrypotter #goodreads #pottermore #kitap #hermionegranger #quidditch #dracomalfoy #ronweasley #bookish #book #bookstagram #bookworm #myeverydaymagic #seekthesimplicity #lecture #libro #livro #voldemort #hogwarts #hogwartsismyhome #writing #mystyle #outfitoftheday #igreads #igbooks

トレヴィーノさんが海外サイト「boredpanda」に語ったところによると、最初はそのとき読んでいる本を写真に撮ってインスタにアップしていたというジェームスさん。ところがだんだんと写真は複雑なものとなり、ポップカルチャーやインスタで見た画像などに影響されるようになってきたのだとか。

If you could witness any event of the past, present or future, what would it be? 📚 I think it would be the first contact for me. Meeting alien life for the first time. Be a part of history in the making and watch as a race more evolved than ours decides we are worthy to be noticed. 📚 On another note, regarding this pic, that is somewhat Castiel inspired, I just want to say that never in my life have I spent more time editing a single project. It took about 6 hours😰. And you might think: but James, what was so complicated about it? And I say: everything! I think I had over 10 final versions before this one came up and funny thing: this one was half inspiration/half mistake. I guess good things never come from half measures. But either way, another addition to the Angel Series. Hope you guys enjoy it. #whpcolorpop 📑 📑 📑 #bookstagram #book #books #reading #read #bibliophile #booklover #bookart #bookblogger #epicreads #bookcollector #moodygrams #surrealism #theweekoninstagram #artshub #fromabove #fromwhereistand #supernatural #postitforaesthetic #kitap #youngadult #angel #creartmood #Ps_WarmTones #Lr_People #enter_imagination #thegraphicspr0ject #artistry_vision #pr0ject_uno @instagram @photoshop @moodygrams @edit_grams @manipulation.clan @visual_creatorz

そうして今ではイマジネーションをかきたてるような、遊びゴコロのあるブックアート写真に。たとえばジェームスさんが手にしている杖から本の束が飛び出しているようになっていたり(まるで魔法を使っているみたい!)や、ジェームスさんの背中から生えている翼が本を広げたものになっていたりととってもユニーク!

作品を作る際は親友のエリザベスさんとまずブレーンストーミングをおこない、アイデアが定まったらそのビジョンに近づけていくという作業をしているのだそう。

【ハリーポッターシリーズ好きが作品にも!?】

今後のブックアート写真も非常に楽しみなジェームスさん。ちなみに、幅広いジャンルの読書の中でも大好きな一冊が『ハリー・ポッターと謎のプリンス』なのだとか。彼の作品には魔法使いや魔術を思わせるものが多いだけに、これには思わず納得ですよね!

Who is your favorite ACOTAR/SUPERNATURAL character? 📚 Happy Wednesday everyone! I decided to make another addition to the angel series. And because every single time I do one of these you guys tell me it is either ACOTAR or Supernatural inspired I decided to go with the flow and talk about those two very different beasts. Are y'all happy now?😂 📚 On a different note, I got sunburnt to a crisp yesterday (yes, this pic was obviously taken beforehand). So much so that I can't put any freakin' clothes on me. It is bloody ridiculous. Any ideas how to make it all go away faster? 📑 📑 📑 #acotar #bookcommunity #supernaturalfamily #bookaddict #supernatural #reader #castiel #rhysand #acourtofthornsandroses #yafiction #nightcourt #sarahjmaas #spnfamily #samwinchester #musings #contemporaryart #deanwinchester #spnfandom #destiel #leseratte #wordporn #supernaturalfandom #reading #bookworm #read #angels #zen #art_whisper #art_viral🔍

What is your favorite emoji? Comment down bellow. 📚 Okay, I know, I know: James, why would you make a post about emojis? Did you run out of ideas? First of all, I feel offended that my imaginary self would even ask that! Second… er… maybe? Nah, but I wanted to make a post about this forever because I use emojis so much! I know some people think they are a scourge on society, but I am grateful they exist because they save me from a lot of situations where I don't know what to say or I am just too lazy to type long answers! Bless you, emoji keyboard! 📚 Hope you Monday was awesome! Peace out! 📑 📑 📑 #mondaymotivation #emoji #emojis #bookstagram #bookporn #books #ootd #poetry #writing #theartofslowliving #bookart #akas_khoone #книги #edebiyat #bookgasm #totalbooknerd #potterhead #becauseofreading #ilovebooks #smile #chico #smiles #artshub #art #seekinspirecreate #nothingisordinary #unitedbookstagram #lifestyleblogger #vscocool
