Black & White and Read All Over

It is no wonder that Lorenzo Petrantoni spends much of his time pouring through old books to find artworks to photocopy for his collage illustrations. His most recent exhibit in Milan included over 22,000 individual pieces of paper attached to the gallery walls, and 800 time pieces, to illustrate the word Timestory. The exhibit is now past, but you can fortunately see his new Timestory book on the same topic which was just released by Gestalten. He must have the patience and organization of a librarian in order to keep track of all those little scraps of paper.

  1. Very interesting. It brings the collage as an art form a whole new meaning!
