You know when you adore something so much that you can’t even find a way to express it aptly enough? Yeah… That’s how I feel about Meg Hitchcock’s incredible text art.

From her artist’s statement:

In my text work I examine and dissect the word of God by cutting letters from holy books. I deconstruct a text letter by letter, and reassemble it to form another sacred writing. The Koran is turned into the Bible, the Bible is morphed into the Bhagavad Gita, the Torah becomes a Tantric text, and so on. By eliminating punctuation and spaces between words, I discourage a literal reading of the text to reveal the common spiritual thread that weaves through all sacred writings.
