you should ever forget the enchantment that a book can cast on a child,
Su Blackwell’s paper sculptures will bring it back to you in a moment.
Her fragile, intricate creations—carved from and mounted on the pages of the books that inspired them—are worlds in miniature, beckoning you to shrink to Lilliputian size and wander into them.
For those of you who enjoyed my illustrated book 'The Fairytale Princess', you might also like this new publication from Thames and Hudson to be released 16th October.
The Sleeping Beauty Theatre Book is a spin-off of The Fairytale Princess. It focuses on the story of Sleeping Beauty, and is beautifully packaged with everything you or your child needs to re-enact a theatrical telling.
The toy theatre unfolds from a book, alongside set-changes, characters and props from my original illustrations.
Accompanied by a paperback book containing scripts and set-changes for you to follow, it is carefully thought-out, giving you an option of following the script-book or of creating your own telling.
