The Fairytale Princess Book, Published by Thames and Hudson

Original and exceptional … remarkable for its photographic illustrations of Su Blackwell’s extraordinary paper sculptures.

The Sunday Times

The Fairytale Princess presents seven fairy tales, beguilingly illustrated by the artist Su Blackwell’s book-cut sculptures. While the tales are faithfully retold, the illustrations invite the reader to step into a paper kingdom where princesses inhabit an enchanting world made from the very books that created them.

One of the most beautiful books of the year

Absolutely Kensington

I was totally enchanted by the artists Su Blackwell’s The Fairytale Princess: Seven Classic Stories from the Enchanted Forest. Blackwell makes incredibly beautiful 3D sculptures out of the pages of books, and her intricately cut images have been carefully lit and photographed, with stunning results.

The Snow Queen, Set Design

There is a great deal to charm here, especially in Su Blackwell’s cutout paper designs, which conjure fairytale forests and winking houses.

Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

The scantly coloured set by Su Blackwell, with its paper cut-out trees and houses, is lovely.
