I discovered the work of Su Blackwell in my Mum’s Waitrose Food Illustrated magazine over Christmas – she (Su Blackwell, not my Mum) provided the illustrations for a version of the Nutcracker written by Sophie Dahl . I immediately made a note to look up her work on the internet when I got a chance, and wow, I am so glad I did. Her book-cut sculptures are utterly beautiful and I really wish I could own one.
