While browsing through the Humument work of Tom Phillips I came across this amazing piece of art done by artist Brian Dettmer which he dedicated to Tom Phillips. I found this book very different from most of the other humument books i had seen so far, one of the main differences i notice is that there are not additional pictures painted on the book, there are no drawings on the pages, also the total shape of the book is not square anymore. The only kind of editing done to this book is by cutting the edges and the pages so that it reads as one page but actually it's total of 360 pages. There are not lots of colors used not so many mediums used and yet it looks so unique and the hard work done speaks for itself. This is a real work of art and is now present in the Ashmolean museum.
