Isaac Salazar, an accountant in New Mexico, spends his free time creating the Book of Art.

Some lines from his biography:

“I am someone who has never taken an art class in my life but have stumbled upon making Book Art / Book Origami. I didn’t think I had an artistic bone in my body and never thought of myself as creative. I had seen the Readers Digest Christmas trees and wondered if it was possible to create a different design or use words.”
“I first started off doing simple letters, alternating pages for each fold but now I am doing more complex and intricate fonts. I use simple arithmetic and an exacto knife as my supplies along with lots of time. It takes me anywhere from a day for the simpler styles to 2 weeks for the more complex styles.”

“My inspiration comes from multiple things and places. I can browse the used book section for titles that stand out to me.”
