Iconic singles transformed firstly into classic book covers and then into glass coated Swallowtail butterflies. Giclée printed onto 310 gram archival paper each one is painstakingly hand cut and finished before creating the 3 dimensional composition. The butterflies are then encapsulated between two frames. The outer a moulded charcoal or ivory frame and the inner an ivory or charcoal slip frame. These frames were chosen as they bear resemblance to the cases that held the butterfly collections at the Natural History Museum that I visited as a child.
Classics include ‘Stairway To Heaven’, ‘This Charming Man’, ‘Sister Ray’, ‘Sex Machine’ and 12 more.
They ‘shimmer’ as they catch the light. For this one or to commission your own record book butterflies please get in touch! P & P is subject to discussion as it would need to be sent by a specialised courier who can guarantee safe delivery of glass items.
