Intricate book sculptures


An artist has taken the rich detailed worlds in novels and transformed them into beautiful three-dimensional sculptures emerging from each book.

Su Blackwell’s new exhibition was inspired by her favourite books and how ‘dwelling can act as imaginative space’.

After reading each book, Blackwell would form dwellings from the pages by cutting, carving, and adding detail within the sculpture.

Described as a very time-consuming technique, it brings together the physical elements of each particular book, from large trees to detailed leaves, creating a magical effect.

Each sculpture tells a story that has envisioned the way each novel would look in a child’s mind.

You can see the incredible dioramas for yourself – they’re on show from September 17th to October 9th in Westminster’s Long & Ryle Gallery.

Take a look at some of Blackwell’s sculptures here  and tell us what you think of them.
