Elsa Mora’s Incredible Cut Paper “Garden of Books”

elsa mora

Ya’ll, I am so impressed with this cut paper sculpture by artist Elsa Mora; the details within it are incredible! Using just acid-free paper and glue, she creates depth and texture through well-placed cuts and minuscule, hand-punched holes. Close-up shots reveal wonderful things like the tiniest decorated books on a shelf. Get lost in this piece titled Garden of Books.

You might be familiar with Mora via her excellent blog, Art is a Way. If you don’t read it, I highly recommend that you start. It’s one of my go-to blogs, and it features ceramics, artists, crafts, and more.
