The Huffington Post however has rather neatly shown off exactly what it is that Carl Pappenheim does – he takes the whole text of a book and uses it to create a silhouette picture. This does of course give you some rather nifty results and I have been tempted to go about purchasing prints/posters of his work. Just take a look at what he’s done with Roald Dahl’s fabulous James and the Giant Peach:

Very striking I think you’ll agree, and a rather neat idea for using the text from books. Yet another item to add to the ‘To Buy’ wishlist….
