orchid-white In 2006 Su Blackwell began exhibiting what she has termed as her ‘book-cut sculptures’, cutting images from old books to create three-dimensional dioramas.

copy-akr Alexander Korzer-Robinson cuts up antiquarian books to create layered works of art. He makes book sculptures by working through a book, page by page, cutting around some of the illustrations while removing others. In this way, Korzer-Robinson builds up his composition using only the images found in the book.

copy-may Jeremy May is a jeweller who has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly Paper Jewellery is made by laminating hundreds of hand-cut sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss.

copy-yvette Yvette Hawkins makes installations and sculptural objects using books, maps and other found materials, utilising a variety of techniques that include cutting, folding, stitching and bookbinding.
