We always suspected that Gandalf might make a pretty great Santa…
Alicia MB, an illustrator based in Melbourne, Australia, created an awesome series of geeky Christmas cards. Featuring characters from Doctor Who, Star Wars, The Hobbit, The Avengers, and more, the cards are available in Alicia’s web store both as greeting cards and postcards. We’re tempted to get a set just to keep for ourselves.

It’s Have Yourself A Very Awesome Christmas on Geyser of Awesome!
Acrylic on found wood panel, 2012
We’ve previously featured a variety of wonderful forms of book art, so we were delighted to happen upon the work of artist Kelly Campbell Berry. Kelly carefully transforms children’s books into intricate, one-of-a-kind sculptures. The books appear to have opened themselves up to each tell their own stories.
“I am truly amazed at the ability some people have to arrange words in such a way that we, the readers, can actually ‘see’ into the imagined world of the writer. We relate, feel, and become invested in the characters so deeply that we are pulled into their world for a brief moment of escape. In some cases I remember certain books with such fondness that I feel as it I experienced them. I still have a connection to Stewart Little and The Borrowers. Books, for me, come alive. That is why I have started creating book sculptures. My book sculptures are my way of showing what the words on the pages create in the imagination of the readers.
