Book sculptures

When l look at the intricate book sculptures by artist Su Blackwell, l feel as though, l have suddenly stepped into the magical world of folklore and fairy tales.Each sculpture is created from a second-hand book, which l feel makes Su Blackwell’s work even more delightful. Her art surely inspires us to look at the traditional book form in a completely new way.

Su Blackwell currently has an exhibition at The Brontë Parsonage Museum, Haworth, which will be on display until 28th November 2010. l am very excited to announce, that l will be visiting this exhibition at the beginning of November!

This chosen image is Alice: A Mad Tea Party, 2007.
