I love this altered book by Fabio Morais, in which he’s cut out all of the continents and islands, leaving only the oceans. The simplicity of this idea and the strength of its execution – look at how accurately the land was cut out! – leave us to enjoy the subtle colors, the forms and shapes made by the overlapping cut-outs, and the way it changes how we read the book. Old atlases and other ephemera are already so lovely and fun, even un-altered, especially to those of us who love books (and often by extension, old-fashioned things); it’s wonderful to see this kind of material used in such a simple and successful way.
