Literary Houses

In this new small series of book-works, I have re-created the homes of some of our most well-known women writers of the 19th Century.
In meticulous detail, these paper houses are built from the pages of Charlotte Bronte, Jane Austen and Daphne Du Maurier's most well-known novels.

What inspired this series of works?  
While flicking through the Guardian magazine a few months ago, I came across an an article called 'Writer's Rooms'. Published every weekend, 'Writer's Rooms' offered a tantalising glimpse into the minds of our most successful and popular books. Supported by Eamonn McCabe's photographs and accompanying text, the articles explored the working environments of renowned writers and poets.

McCabe notes;
'Peering into the private spaces of contemporary writers seems to hold a peculiar fascination for many of us. It's almost as though by witnessing the secretive space of the poet, novelist or playwright we can glean something of the mysteries of literary creation'.

This made me think about the homes of famous women writers, homes that have now become museums, where we can go to pay homage to these writers, with the hope that their homes will imbue us with inspiration, or enable us a glimpse into their World.  
'Ferryside' in Cornwall, Home to Daphne Du Maurier, 1943- 1968 - Novel: Rebecca, published 1938
The Bronte Parsonage - Home to Charlotte Bronte, 1820-1855 - Novel 'Jane Eyre', first published 1847
Jane Austen's House, Hampshire 1809 - 1817 - Novel 'Pride and Prejudice' first published 1813 

These works will be on display for sale at the londonprintfair in May
