So what do Primary Readers and Encyclopedia have in common? For one thing, they both concern reading and books, but there isn’t really much that they share. That is, until artist Thomas Allen came along. He was able to create superb cool images just by cutting out pictures from these books.
Heck, I used to do that as a kid and I really loved pop-ups but sadly, I wasn’t able to put together a concept like this. Ah, well, he beat me to it. LOL. But now that you know how Allen did it, there’s no reason why you can’t too, right?
I’m the Swan Princess and the book is my stage!
Hurry up! I am tired of being the damsel in distress!
Hey man! You should have used Geography. It might be easier for you to move that barrel.

Woman 1: “This book is too scary! Please, I want to trade places!”
Woman 2: Gasp! “You’re in the Haunted Lady!”
Woman 3: Oh, no! No!
Woman 4: “I will do in there!”
Woman 5: “I’m out of here! Hurry! Who wants to go with me?”
Jane: “Where’s Mr. Rochester? I can’t find him anywhere.”
Man: “Hold on! Don’t let go!”
Woman: “Hurry up! You %$#@&a

Isn’t he just so imaginative? Allen’s inspiration came from the good ‘ol pop-up books when he was a child. And just like a child, he got a wild imagination and his wild thinking brought out his creative juices that made him do what he did. Well, what he did was not bad or sort of those things. LOL! But what he did was to wonderfully convey a story for each of his book art. If you don’t believe me, look at the images again and try to make up some stories based on what you see. Game?
