A beautiful handmade artwork of paper butterflies created from the novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses

This special artwork would make a stunning gift for any lover of literature. The picture has hand cut and stitched butterfly books of various sizes forming a moving pattern on a background of manipulated text, which then flows up around the sides of the box frame.

This work is part of a series of works based on literature inspired by my fascination with collections of objects. The pieces are created from damaged or neglected books, chosen for the colour and quality of page and print style.

A personalised piece based on a favourite book, poem or piece of music can be commissioned as a special gift.

Artists Version: 'Dangerous'. Each piece is based on the format of the main picture but pattern and butterfly size will vary making each a unique artwork.

Personalised Version: Made to order with book, poem or music of your choice.

Choose from black, white or natural wood frame.

made from:

Paper, cotton, wood & glass


Size: H35.7 x W35.7 x D4.5 cm

    I couldn't be happier with my artwork and the interpretation of the brief I gave. It is a piece to be treasured!
