From Vintage Books into Modern Mini Masterpieces

It appears that the economy is shaking the art world.  Artist Thomas Allen is cutting back on his art supply costs--literally. His tools? A razor blade and an old book. Allen's new work, which is being featured at the Foley Gallery in New York City, is a series of pop-up images derived from various vintage books.

My question is this: Did Allen use the Harlequins because of the interesting imagery or because they were the only ones he could bear to hack up? Just a thought. 

Either way, this spin on vintage meets modern and pin-up meets pop-up is right up my artistic alley.
