Celebrity Faces Comes Out From Phone Books

Celebrity Faces Comes Out From Phone Books


Alex Queral, 51, from Philadelphia, US, carves famous faces out of phone books. The artist got his idea and started chipping away when he noticed piles of unused phone books just lying around.

The resourceful artist now produces up to two new impressions every month and has been crafting his works for 14 years.He begins by selecting his famous face and copies it by freehand sketching.His drawing is then placed over the phone book as a template and he uses an artist’s scalpel or basic razor blades to patiently slice away at the thousands of pages inside the famous book. He said: “Every year when the new phone book comes out you see just piles of the old ones lying around waiting for collection. “It can be quite tense work sometimes because it takes a long time to finish and when you cut something away you can’t get it back again”.
