Flies and Spiders by MBrainspaz Flies and Spiders by MBrainspaz
I took an old library edition of The Hobbit and killed it artfully. That's what it felt like, anyway.

The book is opened to the chapter Flies and Spiders, which was always my favorite when I was little. I tried to represent it by cutting up the book.

3 hours. Lots of cutting. A bit of glue. A ton of fun.

(Inspired by Su Blackwell)

I had to do something like that for class! I understand the feeling of ruining a book :roll: But you've done an awesome cool job!

I'm normally against destroying books, but I still love this :)

every nerve in my body is screaming out against the damaging of a book, but in saying that, I think it looks great! Just DON'T come near my bookshelves! lol
