paper art

Long pin (detail) Hand-made paper with cast silver seed inclusions and fine silver. Sabrina Meyns Irish artist Sabrina Meyns makes jewelry out of paper and silver. This piece may be less durable than your typical jewelry, but it's certainly more robust than the fragile poppies it mimics, and the translucency and delicacy is breathtaking. Unfortunately, her site only has a few examples of her work, but hopefully we'll see more of her in the future. Via Daily Art Muse
Why do I love paper art so much? Intersection of book, art, and (by presentation here) new media? Or is just because it's pretty? This certainly is. A video of a walk through a highly literary society. I love the nighttime section. From the folks at 4th Estate Hat tip: Alice
