inspiration / book sculptures

I'm kind of a sucker for fairy tales, even as an "adult", haha!  When this book arrived at work a few weeks ago, I was completely smitten.  The illustrations are actually photographs of book sculptures made by Su Blackwell, an artist based in the UK.  Her work is gorgeous and ridiculously detailed, not to mention all the lighting and set up involved to then photograph the works.  Here's a couple of my favorites:

2009, Out of Narnia


2013, The Raven, photograph by Jaron James

2011, The Baron in the Trees, detail
Crazy awesome, right?  For more of Su's work, check out her website and for a preview of The Fairy Tale Princess illustrations check out the book's entry on Amazon - enjoy!
