The D+PAD Handmade Geekery collection provides your inner geek with a chic way of showing your adoration for vintage games with unique mixed-media wall art. The Handmade Geekery collection features iconic game characters such as the Duck from Duck Hunt, and Mario from Super Mario Brothers.

What makes this collection unique isn't just the fact that it is homemade, but rather what it is made of: recycled book covers. The artist Matt calls himself, "a librarian by day, and a tired librarian by night. [Who] enjoy[s] destroying books."

The Handmade Geekery pieces are awesome and even the most closeted inner nerd would easily place these on their wall. The mixed-media characters are made with 1/2-inch tiles on acrylic-painted canvas.

Each piece in the Handmade Geekery collection is one of a kind. I can't think of a better way to pay homage to classic vintage games.
