If you’re a frequent visitor to this space, you’ll know how much we appreciate great book art — but not all art made from books feels as cerebral and boundless as its subject. Enter British illustrator Russell Cobb, whose work we recently spotted over at Lost at E Minor — Cobb’s illustrations are like dreams, stories seeping upwards from their literary canvases, often engaged with investigating the connection between mind and body. Plus, they’re gorgeous — if you like a little weird augmenting your pretty, that is. After the jump, page through a few of our favorites from Cobb’s series, and then be sure to head on over to his website to check out more of his work.
