Books are a gateway to another world. The art of storytelling is a gift that very few are born with, but words still offer so much meaning to life when used correctly. But UK-based artist Emma Taylor creates magical sculptures and figurines out of old books that she acquires from antique shops and charity drives. Her sculpting medium involves simple materials such as paper, scissors, and glue. Taylor loves to fashion mythical creatures, charming sceneries, and stunning scenarios. She shares these stunning paper sculptures on her website as well as on her Twitter page. Taylor also has an Etsy shop where fans of her art can purchase photographic prints and bookmarks of her sculptures.
You can feel the summer heat in the air.
Reaching for the sky through the sheets.
A library within a book!
A battle between a ferocious dragon and a brave knight.
Push through the seven seas!
A highly-flammable, flaming beast.
Open your mind to a whole new world!
A nest of knowledge.
In full display!
There's a buzz in the air and it's exciting us all.
Just take the reins and charge ahead.
Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your long hair!
With swaying palm trees and a hammock to relax on.
Ever giving, ever growing.
Rowing to the horizon.
Rough waters never stopped an adventurer.
Rising from the ashes with a new purpose.
Completed with a basket of flowers.
The level of detail in this is remarkable!
Their ideas can now take flight!
From the garden of books.
