Cut Book Sculpture: London

    Newer Older

    I've been going through some of my photos from the trip to Scotland/Ireland/England
    and wanted to share this amazing sculpture from the lobby of our London hotel: it's an
    old book on birds which have been cut and folded so that the pages become three dimensional art. (view LARGE to see the incredible detail )

    greenclovers, studio-d, and 82 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      Thanks for visiting my Blog and leaving a message!
      I just wrote another but trying to get photo's into it has been a real pain! paulgrand.blogspot.com/2007/01/truffle_03.html#links
      Anouska's Hotel did seem a little more Zen than this one!
      I've never heard of this No 16, but i have been in France for several years!

      What a concise little truffle education - thanks for sharing!
      Hope you and Martine are feeling better - - - it must be a
      WorldWideChristmasMalady: everyone I speak with has some
      version of it .... . .

      -- - growing up in Lousiana, I picked up a bit:
      un peu - shall we say? Really just enough to purchase
      chaussures rouges or cafe noir ... ... what more does
      a girl need??

      The Large is not a feature!:~(

    15. studioJudith 91 months ago | reply

      hmmmm ... . can you click on "all sizes" and get a larger format?
      Or you can go to the MY VIEW set and find the photo - Bird Detail
      from Cut Book Sculpture.
      If all else fails , just send me a flickr mail with your email and
      I'll send you a close up :-)
