Step into a fairytale world, where princesses live in paper kingdoms that emerge from seven classic tales: Cinderella, The Frog Prince, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Princess and the Pea, Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty.
Each tale is illustrated by a series of intricate paper sculptures, meticulously cut from the pages of another edition of the same story. Su Blackwell’s sculptures summon up a fantastical world of beauty and mischief, while Wendy Jones’s retellings are fresh and lyrical.
'Original and exceptional … remarkable for its photographic illustrations of Su Blackwell’s extraordinary paper sculptures'
'While the tales are faithfully retold, the illustrations invite the reader to step into a paper kingdom where princesses inhabit an enchanting world made from the very books that created them'
