Hard-Boiled Papercraft

Photographer Thomas Allen has a new book of pop-up art created from vintage pulp covers called Uncovered.

I have mixed feeling about his methods (especially since Chip Kidd is attached to the project who--though an enthusiast of comic and pulp art--has presided over some extremely butchered presentations of said art) but Allen's images are beautiful.

I hope he doesn't inspire any copycat killings though.
