Phone Book Faces

Carvings made out of Phone Books, this Artist sometimes uses a black wash to enhance the features and applies acrylic to preserve the pages leaving them pliable to the touch.  Cuban Artist Alex Queral makes a simple phone book into so much more than its original purpose and keeps it away from the landfill.  Pay special attention to the top right hand corner of each page, as the alphabetization matches the person sculpted, very clever.
