Adorable Book Sculpture of Matilda, The Roald Dahl Story

Su Blackwell, the London-based artist who we previously featured here and here, has just come out with a book sculpture and it's absolutely adorable. Commissioned for a client whose mother was instrumental in bringing Matilda the Musical to the stage, this work is cut from pages of Roald Dah's book and incorporates the illustration of Matilda by notable illustrator Quentin Blake. In it, you see Matlida standing on top of a large stack of books, reaching high in the sky for even more books. Love how she incorporates the trees and the lit house.
