Pulp Fiction "Diorama Photos" Using Book Cover Art

Book Cover Illustrations make great Dioramas

Artist Thomas Allen creates cool vintage scenes by taking pulp fiction book covers and using "découpage" techniques, turns them into dioramas. (He also uses depth of field and lighting to add an extra dimension to the scenes when he photographs them.) I could see something like this being used to create dioramas to present books to a class or for displays in a library. Library Helpers could be enlisted to scan covers onto cardstock and have some creative fun!
