Phantom Tollbooth Inspired Book Art by Thomas Allen

Artist Thomas Allen (previously here) create works for The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center and a tower of The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

He was asked to select two books from a list of cherished children's stories and make a series of positive and uplifting photographs inspired by them.

He then created these three-dimensional renditions of the cast of 'The Phantom Tollbooth' and 'Stuart Little' that bring the story to life.

"For The Phantom Tollbooth, I brought 6 of the book's many personified idioms to life by crafting the characters from the surfaces of other books and ephemera that spoke of their essence. For example, Spelling Bee appears to emerge and hover above a spelling dictionary while the Mathemagician stands atop a tower of flashcards, with a confident art raised skyward as if to say, "A solution to any problem can be found."
