When is a Tree Stump Not a Tree Stump? When It’s a Book.


Handmade book by Pochiko HO

If it looks like a stump of wood… it might not be a stump of wood—it could be a book! Artist Pochiko HO has done exact­ly this with a hand­made text that’s about insects. The clever book’s nat­ur­al-col­ored pages are con­tained with­in a small chunk of tree bark. Sim­ply remove the book from the cir­cu­lar stump and reveal the winged insects that live inside.
