Eric sat at the scrawny desk in the middle of the cramped canteen, trying his best to look blasé. If he could get past the facts that: a) he was onboard the infamous Tea Demon, b) he’d called it a piece of junk, c) he’d stolen a kiss from its captain, and d) if he failed to accomplish the job he’d foolishly accepted he’d probably end his days in a most painful way, he could almost manage it.

I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.

Buffalo, New York-based paper artist Maude White painstakingly hand-cuts exquisite depictions of animals (particularly birds), people, leaves and other subjects. Each piece requires thousands of precise, tiny cuts, and some of them contain even more delicate images hidden within the larger designs.

"I have great respect for paper. When I cut, the thin membranous material reveals its strength to me. No matter how small my cuts the paper holds. There is a certain comfort in that, a comfort I enjoy. I feel that there are very few things in the world as reliable and constant as paper. Paper is everywhere and it has been telling stories for centuries. By respecting and honoring paper for what it is, and not considering it a stepping-stone to something greater, I feel like I am communicating some of the pleasure it brings to me. I am not creating for Art’s sake. I am creating for Paper’s sake, to make visible the stories that every piece of paper attempts to communicate to us."

In September 2014 Maude White will be showing some of her work at the Western New York Book Arts Collaborative as part of an exhibition entitled Birds I’ve Been.

To check out more of her work, visit White’s online portfolio and keep up with her latest creations, including fascinating process photos, via her Instagram acount. She also offers some of her creations for purchase via Etsy at Brave Bird Paperwork.

LOOK. IT’S AN INFOGRAPHIC FOR RUFFS. This coming from the fantastic French blog La costume historique—at least, I think they’re fantastic? I’m mostly looking at the pictures.
There’s also one that matches ruffs with collars, which is great.
Wish they ventured into the 17th century, but. Still. What a time to be alive.

I luff ruffs

I can never resist a historical fashion art reference infographic.
