Today I’m hosting an exciting giveaway. It is for two luxurious books beautifully illustrated by my fellow paper cutter Kevin Stanton. (Sterling Signature). We’re talking about Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth. He did such a fine job. Each book contains laser-cut designs of Kevin’s work plus printed illustrations. I already have my copies, I’m in love with them!
For a chance to win these two jewels please leave a comment in this post. I will announce the winner on Friday, June 8th 2012.
To see more of Kevin’s work here is his web-site and here is his blog.

They are really wonderful pieces of art, beautiful books!

Stunning! You keep good company.
Such beautiful and original editions of classic Shakespeare. The papercut detail is stunning. As it happens, my 16-year-old daughter has just started studying Macbeth at school, a mere 30 years after I did 🙂
amazing. this satisfies my inner lit geek and the artist.
These are so amazing!
These books are leaving me without breath…!!! I would like to gift one to my little sister, who is so in love with the paper cutting stuff!!
thanks, xxx Alessandra
the magic of drawing/creating images by cutting the paper directly truly amazes me every time….the layers, the importance of the empty spaces….thank you for sharing. This one would go directly to my grand children’s(yet to be born)collection of children’s books. It would strengthen my book treasures.
thank you kindly,

Papercutting and loving it.

Beautiful images. Just picked up a new book on Lotte Reiniger today-gorgeous! Also picked a DVD of her splendid fairy tale films from the British Film Institute.

Elsa, these are amazing! Kevins illustrations are not only beautiful, but his choice of colour palette is gorgeous.

How exciting to interpret Shakespeare through papercutting.
It is amazing how each of us can take a piece of paper and create
something different. Kevin’s work work demonstrates this both in technique
and color choices, not to mention his interpretation of the text.
These are so beautiful . . . the colours, the design, amazing! Papercuts and Shakespeare, such a wonderful combination. More books should be illustrated this way, there can never be too much of this kind of beauty in the world. x Clare
