Carved Telephone Directories

Carved Telephone Directories
Taking an ordinary phone book, Alex Queral carves a face into it. With the book, a very sharp knife, a little pot of acrylic medium to set detail areas and a great deal of talent, Queral literally peels away the pages like the skin of an onion to reveal the portrait within. Once the carving is complete, he will often apply a black wash to enhance the features and then seal the entire book with acrylic to preserve the work.
