beautiful book art

Although I am undecided in terms of whether or not I agree with cutting up old books, there is no doubt in my mind that this book art by Su Blackwell, a London artist, is utterly gorgeous and magical. My favorite is the Wild Swans piece, one of the my favorite Andersen fairy tales, as well as an upcoming Simply Read Books' title, illustrated in a stunning manner by Thomas Aquinas Maguire.
