以前Pouchで取り上げた、本を使ったアート写真で人気のインスタグラマーJames Trevino(ジェームス・トレヴィーノ)さん。その際に「作品をつくるときは親友のエリザベスさんとまずブレーンストーミングしてる」とお伝えしましたが……今回ご紹介するのは、そのエリザベスさんのほう!

Elizabeth Sagan(エリザベス・サガン)さんもまた、膨大な数の蔵書をアート写真にしているブックスタグラマー。彼女のインスタグラムには、スーパーウーマンに人魚、迷路など、これまたイマジネーションとクリエイティビティに満ちたブックアートの数々が投稿されています。

【スーパーウーマンは赤いマントに注目!】

スーパーウーマンといえば、Sの文字が胸に描かれたコスチュームと赤いマントが印象的なアメコミヒロイン。それに変身したエリザベスさんですが……赤いマントの部分は全部、本!


赤い本だけを厳選してマントの形に敷きつめていて、とってもユニークで綺麗! 本好き女性は、ハロウィンに合わせてこんな自撮りを真似して撮ってみるのも面白そうです。

【美しい人魚もやっぱり本が……】

神秘的な人魚姿も披露しているエリザベスさん。こちらは下半身、つまりサカナの部分がすべて青い本で固められています。

尾ひれのほうに行くほど濃いブルーになっているのがニクい演出! 手に持った杖のようなものまで本で作ってありますね。

【本で作った迷路】

ときには迷路がモチーフのブックアートも。

本をつなげて巨大な迷路を作っちゃった! 行き止まりなどにバナナが置かれているのも、エリザベスさんの遊び心が感じられて楽しいですね。

【今後のブックアート作品にも期待★】

見ているとこちらまでその世界観に引き込まれてしまう、エリザベスさんのブックアート。ジェームスさんとインスピレーションを与えあっているというだけあり、よく似ているところも……。でも彼女なりのセンスも多く感じられる仕上がりで、おしゃれで可愛くてユーモアたっぷり!


すでに10万人超のフォロワーを持つ彼女。これからもブックスタグラマーとして、ファンの目をおおいに楽しませてくれるに違いありません。ぜひ皆さんも彼女の作品の数々、インスタでチェックしてみて。

What's one trope in fiction that will make you instantly buy the book? 📚 For me it's having superpowered characters in the real world. Chronicle + X-Men + Steelheart. Or anything that shows the real world going to sh*t (see The Passage & Soft Apocalypse). I feel like I'm Christian Grey telling Anastasia Steele that my tastes are very… singular. Rawrrr. 📚 Don't forget about the giveaway that I'm hosting – see the previous pic. You can win The Mortal Instruments box set and The Whispers of The Fallen series. 📚 #whpperspective #angel #bookangel #supernatural #azriel #cassian #nesta #elaine #sjmaas #art #artofbookstagram #wings #bookish #bookishlove #📘 #📚 #booksbooksbooks #booksofinstagram #bookstagrammer #bookstoread #bookrecommendation #currentread #currentlyreading #epicreads #top_bookstagram

(#ad) Physical books or ebooks? 📚 Lately I’m drawn more to ebooks. Shocker, I know. But it’s so much easier to find about the book I want and have it sent to my tablet in seconds. You gotta love technology, especially when 80% of my life revolves around my laptop and my phone. I also love when I can easily find new book recommendations (please, make my TBR list longer than it already is). That’s why I partnered up with @whatbookapp and here me out cause we are bringing you some sweet, sweet stuff. 📚 But first, what is Whatbook? Simply put, it’s a way to find the next book to read with fast and reliable recommendations from people you know, trust, and follow. You can create lists of the books you’ve read and want to read by simply curating collections of books for specific genres, topics, and classes. Search for a book and immediately see if anyone you follow has read it, and if they would recommend it or not. 📚 Currently Whatbook only works for iOS, but it also will be available for Android soon. So, for the people with Apple, I highly recommend you to download the app because next week we are going to have a huge giveaway (how does „a year worth of books” sound? ;) ). 📚 #whatbook #socialreadia #bookstagram #bookgram #bookapp #bookcommunity #bookmania #ilovebooks #book📖 #bookgirl #throneofbooks #targaryen #daenerystargaryen #bookstack #bookpile #got #agameofthrones #aosoiaf #instabook #igread #literatur #literature #georgerrmartin #valarmorghulis

Caption this pic. Best 3 captions get a shoutout. Be weird. 📚 Reading update: well, this has been a busy week so I haven't finished anything :)) I only started another German book with short stories and kinda left the one I was already reading for later. How was your week reading-wise? 📚 This pic is inspired by @annas.buecher… and by an idea that I had a few months ago but it didn't work out then because I used a real umbrela and it looked really bad 😅. Also, I'm giving a shoutout to @book.lover24 because she also did a cool umbrela! 😆 📚 #bookart #bookworld #instabook #igread #bookaholic #art #flatlay #fromabove #whplight #creative #booklovers #bookishlove #bookyourappointment #bookclub #bookcommunity #goodreads #epicreads #bookhaul #bookstagrammer #booksofinstagram #📘 #📚 #📖 #igreads #ilovebooks
