I love butterflies and I would like to collect them but then it would mean they are dead...

With these paper butterflies, you get the pleasure without the pain.

Made from Victorian and Edwardian marbled endpapers/endsheets I have collected over the years, they all have beautiful variations of colours and will last forever.

The frame is made from an old drawer and only the inside is painted in a pale green colour (at least, I think it's green as I am a bit colour blind...). 

It can be hung in various ways but for practical reasons, I have done it with a simple piece of string you can change to fit your own taste. Please note there is no glass on this frame as I feel it would detract the attention from the fact it is a drawer... I am sure a good framer can easily fit some glass if you prefer it that way.

Born and raised in Paris, with a publisher for a father, I have always loved books, for their content of course but also for what they look or even smell like. I am not academically trained as an artist (I am a headhunter by day) but I have also always loved making things. I moved to London in 1994 and over the last few years, I have been collecting old books (and sometimes new ones) that either look good to me or will tell a story, very often different from their original content. I try to give some of those really old or unloved books a new life and a new purpose. I have a preference for illustrated books, some of the ones we very rarely open.I love bringing the inside permanently outside, for everyone to see and enjoy. And when a book has nothing particular to say or show, apart from a good binding, I make a sculpture that will hopefully turn out appealing to most people. If not, I like them anyway...
