Google Books “Found Art”

While using Google Books, I’ve been collecting particularly nice examples of either 1) pages scanned so badly that they become interesting as “found art” in their own right, or 2) images of non-book items, including hands, scanned with the books. There are some very peculiar pages tucked in amongst everything else there. I’m hoping to get a set of images together in the near future for a new online gallery project. If you happen to run across anything that seems likely, leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

  1. Yes, I’ve been coming across a lot of them, too, in addition to the maddeningly blurred pages!

    I lose enough hair as it is without pulling the strands out by the handful over the frustration of finding blurred or missing pages.
