Jodi Harvey-Brown is the talented artist behind these awesome pop-up paper sculptures. It all started when she bought a box of used books at a second-hand shop, after experimentally folding a page to create one of the characters in the stories, she was hooked. She said: “The books that we love to read should be made to come to life. Characters, that we care so much for, should come out of the pages to show us their stories. What we see in our imaginations as we read should be there for the world to see.”. To make her pieces last longer, a layer of protective coating is applied to her creations for waterproofing and to prevent yellowing.
Wires are also incorporated into some of the structures for strength and stability.
