Daniel Speight redesigns rows of books as detailed screenprints of buildings in his Book Block series.

London-based graphic artist Daniel Speight (aka The Soft City) turns rows of books into detailed images in his Book Block series. Instead of seeing individual spines on a bookcase, you can view different buildings in a London neighborhood.

Speight's designs are handcrafted by screenprinting on books that have either been abandoned or are destined to be pulped. His project transforms old reading material into detailed three dimensional art that celebrates the unique architecture of London's streets.
