Book Origami

El Paso-based artist Isaac Salazar folds and cuts the pages of books to create word and images. Here’s the story of how he started in the craft, as told by his wife Veronica:

In 2000, we went house hunting and saw a model home that displayed some book art. They were very simple, kind of like the Readers Digest Christmas Trees, but a bit different. We loved them… so i immediately went home to make our own for the guest bedroom. We have since moved and I needed some new art for our guest bedroom when my husband asked if we can fold “WELCOME” into the book. I thought it was too complicated and told him ~ “I don’t know, why don’t you try”… and viola… he creates the masterpieces and I list & manage our Etsy shop.
