It’s been two years since I last shared the three-dimensional illustrations of Bozka Rydlewska (aka Bozka). Back in 2015, she had recently started her foray into pop-up and tunnel books. They focused specifically on botany and were (and still are!) exquisite in their depiction of natural of beauty. Since then, Bozka has continued her work in multiple dimensions and created a 3D puzzle that’s under the sea.
“The company Echa Leśne form Warsaw invited me to create a story about underwater fairylands,” she tells me in an email. “I designed a three-dimensional puzzle with fish, a sea horse and octopus, surrounded by seashells and seaweed—for personal assembly.”
In addition to this puzzle, Bozka translated her 3D puzzle onto two sets of bedding. It’s a good lesson to think about how your work can be used in multiple formats.
