Handmade Book Features Mesmerizing Illustrations of Striking Eyes

Visual artist Artem Ogurtsov creates dazzlingly enigmatic books out of paper made and cut entirely by hand. Using watercolor, acrylic, and gold leaf, Ogurtsov adorns these books with florid, mesmerizing illustrations of the human eye, along with delicate abstract and geometric patterns. The title of the work, Sententia, is a Latin term for a short moral aphorism or proverb, and Latin words describing different dispositions or traits that often accompany the many emotive, entrancing eyes throughout the tome. This combination of the imposing, ancient script with rich illustrations creates a powerful and captivating aura about this incredible piece.
