Amazing Paper Art

Special thanks to the blog All Things Paper which led me to paper artist Oona Patterson.  Patterson makes miniature paper sculptures out of old books and other paper scraps.

For example, she made this tree (20 cm) from a copy of Hume’s Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding.  Scattered around the tree, both among the branches and beneath it, are an assortment of fairies, so small that you can just see them if you look very hard.

While I can manage a certain inept level of pop up art, this is so beyond anything I can even imagine creating.  But doesn’t it just fire your imagination?

Take the time to explore her work and you just may find yourself next writing a fantasy.
