In 2012, artist Isobelle Ouzman found a box containing old hardbound novels lying beside a dumpster in an alley in Seattle. Rather than ignoring what seems to be a trash for others, Ouzman took interest and decided to bring home the old books and turn it into something awesome.

Using an x-acto knife, Micron pens, watercolors, and glue, Ouzman transformed the old books into magical 3D art that will certainly leave you in awe.

In her website, Ouzman explained that she wanted to give life to the old books.

She wrote: “I love books very much and would never carve into one that was valuable. I just want to give them a new life and a second chance to mean something again”

Three years after she started the project, Isobelle is still altering books that come from thrift stores, recycling bins, or someone who’s willing to donate one.

She hopes to create just a little bit of magic in every page that she makes.

Every one of us have at least one irrational fear that we find too embarrassing and ridiculous to share with anyone else. We're not talking about normal phobias such as fear of heights or spiders. What I mean is the really scary, gruesome ones that doesn't make sense even to yourself.

Maybe this is the reason why it's amusing to see other people's fear portrayed in these witty comics by Fran Krause, the illustrator behind Deep Dark Fears. The project, which begins with Krause's own phobias, now contains hundreds of illustrations about the craziest and darkest fears that readers sent him. If you're brave enough, you can submit one yourself!
