With a thin sheet of white paper and an X-Acto knife, artist Maude White carves out delicate and exquisitely detailed renderings of birds. This hardcover journal features her incredible artwork, reproduced with special production details (embossing and foil stamping) to highlight its intricacy. The journal also has stained edges, a ribbon marker, and features various birds throughout, perhaps with excerpts of Maude’s inspiring text (each of her birds is conceived with a message of mindfulness).
Birds are an evergreen gift and stationery theme (owls, flamingos, and pigeons are all trending–as are feather motifs). Paper-cut illustration is also trendy, and Maude’s meticulously rendered work truly stands out in the field. Maude has a devoted following on Instagram and each of her posts attracts hundreds of comments. This journal and her other paper products compliment Brave Birds, her upcoming book, and she is eager to promote them together.
Maude White is a cut- paper art ist living in New York State’s Hudson Valley. She has been featured online and in print, including The San Francisco Globe, Ted Baker London, ArtVoice, and more. Her work is featured in galleries and her shadow puppet designs are featured in Happy Film by Stefan Sagmeister.
