I came across the work of Rob Ryan in relation to the engineered papers aspect of the first project. He produces intricately designed paper-cuts often combining text and images. I feel that the fragility of the finished design adds to the beauty of them. The other day, I was very excited to come across a book by the man himself, described as 'Magic...intricately fashioned paper-cuts...beautifully designed' by Marie Claire. Its definitely going on my Christmas Wish List and I cannot wait for it to arrive!
