    He builds a house of wood, carving even the clothes hanging in the closet. Most, if not all carvings resemble books. Check it out, some pretty neat stuff, I'm liking the chair he's sitting in.............

    Good grief...that's awesome. I love the bed,it looks like it's resting on books. The coat in the closet is the most impressive...I am wondering if he carved the clothes hangers,too!

    If you look close enough at the exterior of the house, the shingles are carved book spines. Think he brought up the cost of houses in his neighborhood?

    You know the more I look the more I see, the roof is an open book, the chimmney is a fountain pen. I have to stop looking at this house. :D

    OK....... don't know if anyone else noticed it or not, but......... when you open the site (main page) hit "Back" instead of "Next". Italian artist, from the looks of it he lives in Venice, because he driving his full size carved wooden VW Beetle down the canals. Also has a full size Fiat, Vespar and I think BMW. The horse carving is beautiful as well.

    I have seen this guys work before. The cars and everything. It is absolutely amazing. Some of my wood magazines have featured this guy. He is one of the best in the world.
