This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.

Electrical lines that turn into the strings of a massive guitar in the sky. A man dragging a bed sheet, which turns into a road, across an empty field. A charming cottage on an island that is actually the back of a giant fish. Digital photography artist Erik Johansson has achieved international fame by taking and then combining photos into surreal, M.C. Escher-like worlds. This is his first book, and it captures the improbable and impossible in fifty distinctive images.

Digital artist Erik Johansson starts with a simple hand-drawn sketch, but what you see in the end is anything but simple: dazzlingly realistic scenes made of hundreds of photographs--all meticulously staged and propped and then stitched together in software--offer a glimpse into wholly invented, incredibly detailed worlds. While shooting takes only a few days, Johansson's planning and retouching process each take months, resulting in out-of-this-world images that have won him fans worldwide.

Here's what people are saying about the Erik Johannson's work:

"Erik Johansson has created a portfolio of stunning images combining photography, raw materials, and digital editing." -- Daily Mail UK

"Erik Johansson ... has taken] the blogosphere by storm by producing heavily manipulated photographs that] invert aesthetics as we understand them, inspired by MC Escher and other surrealist artists." -- Independent UK
