Here is the paper rabbit by French artist Sophie Azimont - the dress is made from an old french embroidery pattern book. The background is a map of Paris which I found at the local bric-a-brac market. Sophie is one of the artists at Made in Hastings, a shop selling all sorts of delightful things.
"Mandy Prowse studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone College of Art. She explores natural and human forms and the interconnectedness of all things. Themes in her work relate to birth, mortality and metamorphosis. Her altered books are minimalistic and organic combining a modern aesthetic with an almost Victorian touch. If you told me these books were 100 years old I wouldn’t think twice about it.”
