Jacobean Paper Embroidery

All the work I do with books, leaves me with lots of paper print offcuts.  I am fascintated with the different fonts and colours of the book pages and the way they age differently.
I have a serious collection of vintage craft books too, and so I used a Jacobean embroidery pattern as the basis for creating this poster.
The paper comes from vintage magazines and books.  I love the gentle faded hues!
