Oh what a good day

I had today!
A while ago I spotted an exhibition being advertised on HENS TEETH blog, see HERE and HERE
The exhibition is by ROB RYAN and is being held at Staffords Shire Hall Gallery. As Stafford is not that far from us (about 25miles-ish) my husband and I decided to head down there today..........it was so worth the trip! If you get chance I recommend you to go.


 It was full of the most fabulous papercut pictures.......these photos don't do them justice......



 .....hopefully you can see the 3d-ness of this!



 Also on display were the original papercut pictures that were used to illustrate this book by
Carol Ann Duffy.......who is the current POET LAUREATE........I bought a copy of the book in the gallery gift shop.


 The book above is written and illustrated by ROB RYAN and the one below is another collaboration between ROB RYAN and CAROL ANN DUFFY........I had previously bought both from AMAZON.......the Christmas one is particularly lovely.


ROB RYAN also has an ETSY SHOP, a shop in LONDON and a BLOG
