I have always had a thing for pop-up books, the ability for a person to form 3D objects and transform them back to 2D is something beyond me, but I carry a great admiration for such talent.

What makes this over-sized book remarkable is the fact that it is made out of photographs that ...

These amazing photographs feature astonishing detail and color of insects taken by talented photographer Lee Peiling from Malaysia. Lee has only got three years of experience in this field and this type of photography is called bokeh which is basically the blurring technique when taking photography and how light is absorbed by the lens.
