The Wonderful World of Su Blackwell

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

“The Girl in the Wood,” 2008

I love the book sculptures of British artist Su Blackwell. She often portrays scenes from fairy tales or folklore. The detail is amazing (see below). And don’t miss this video of the making of a commercial for Beringer Wines, featuring Su’s work. Also keep your eyes open for her book of illustrated fairy tales, The Fairy-Tale Princess, coming out in October.

Detail from “Hazel Tree (from Aschputtel),” 2010.
