Dear Ada + Will Ashford

Do any of you read Dear Ada? If you don't, and are an art lover, I suggest you click on over and visit her fantastic blog. Most of her selections are fine art (and therefore out of my budget), but it's still a fascinating read on what's current in art.

I'm always pleased with her selections, but today she really captured my fancy with artist Will Ashford. Altered, vintage book pages is a popular medium right now, but I haven't seen anything executed this well before today. He actually makes the words on the page part of the art which is, of course, very appealing to me.

He finds most of his books at garage sales, street markets, and used book stores. I am smitten. Aren't you?
