Books made out of old license plates, I loved it!
The book, "Fallen Heros," is a collection of drawings, paintings and writings by Scott L. Ouderkirk. I was drawn to the hand construction and uniqness of the books along with the sketches inside. Ouderkirk's sketches have a warm, nostalgic, whimsical feel to them. Upon further investigation, each book's cover is made from a license plate that is at least 20 years old. The back cover is hand silk-screened by Ouderkirk. He's quite the craftsman!
I have much respect for the time and care put into these books. I'm a fan of the tag line on Ouderkirk's website: "Drawings that celebrate everything around us." Cheers to that! For more information or on how to order, please visit Ouderkirk's website and blog.
