From your parents you learn love and laughter and how to put one foot before the other. But when books are opened you discover that you have wings.
(Helen Hayes)

A little girl has folded a paper crane. Now she has a paper airplane, flying in the blue sky …which could carry her through the air in a dream,.

The print flies to you in a passe-partout made of book pages, ca 18 cm high and 13 cm wide, the image section is about 6 x 6 cm tall.

This print is from my series of works: nostaglia di carta. I conceived, designed and then carved the motif into the plate to print it on the etching press.
I've printed on book paper and hand colored with watercolors.

"In books lies the soul of all time been."
(Thomas Carlyle)

An upcycling variant full of fairy tales and dreams. Bookart s is creative book recycling for books loving art lovers and art-loving bookworms.
