Artist Randall Rosenthal has carved these stunning paper wooden sculptures that look like real stacks of old newspapers, magazines, comic books and other reading materials.

The use of wooden has been carefully carved into an ordinary stack of paper that appears real from a distance. Each piece is carved from Vermont white pine and carefully painted with acrylic paint to recreate the look and feel of weathered paper, newsprint, and crisp currency notes.

Its fine detailed textures have a strong resemblance of the parchment, creating a surreal tactile experience. With their life-like features, you can't tell if its real unless you actually touch it. This piece was inspired by impressive Rosenthal works from the artist's memory where his paper wooden sculptures make quite the impression.
