1969 ford mustang paper engine by jonathan brand

Our friend Christopher from Colossal is an expert-level Internet tracker of all that is cool in the world of art. We shared some cow-car statues he found recently, but his latest find ups the ante more than a few notches. In fact, we think you'll find he's broken the scale, especially if you happen to be a fan of classic muscle cars.

Artist Jonathan Brand likes working with a variety of mediums, but he is wildly skilled when it comes to handling paper. Brand is also a fan of the 1969 Ford Mustang. Combining his passion for both in a way that only a skilled artist can, Brand has set about the task of building the full-scale Ford entirely out of paper. Not just the shell, mind you, but every single item on the original car will have been born from a tree.

So far, the Brooklyn, New York artist has completed the engine, a wheel and tire, and one of the doors. The accuracy he can achieve in this medium is amazing, and we are eagerly awaiting the day when he folds that last piece and the whole thing comes together. We're guessing it's going to be a while, but we'll be waiting. While you're waiting, check out Brand's work in more detail at his website.
