Pinterest and Paper

It’s a wild and woolly public holiday here in Sydney so what better way to while away the time than pootling about on Pinterest?

And again, I’m drawn to paper art.

I’ve just discovered The Jealous Curator blog (check it out if you love art and great commentary) and also Swedish designer Cecilia Levy who makes beautiful things from vintage paper. I mean, you’ve got to take your hat off to these paper people!

To quote from Cecilia’s website, she uses ‘books from the beginning of the last century. Take[s] them apart, tear[s], shred[s] and cut[s] the pages into small pieces that are reassembled into new objects. Eggshell thin, yet remarkably steady. The story lives on, but in a different shape’.

In a word: Beautiful.
