Nothing like an adventure tale of sea monsters and lust to make you feel like the action is leaping off the page and straight into your credulous brain. Photographer Thomas Allen knows that too. He creates these images by carefully cutting book covers apart, posing them, then shooting the results to create a strange, dreamy 3D quality. We've got more of his bookish creations below.

I love when he combines two books, as he does in several of these photographs. You can see the genres literally reaching out to interact with each other.
