A unique handmade piece of art, sewn from old magazines with free UK ' First Class Signed For' delivery.

It is not a print or copy, it is the original piece, making it a one-off. Not another the same.

Made from the front page of the London Evening Standard (20.10.17), showing a photograph of Cressida Dick and Grayson Perry by Nigel Howard.

Hand-stitched to a plate (Rothko Number 10. 1950) from A Concise History Of Modern Painting by Herbert Read. Published by Thames and Hudson, 1964.

The book had been retired from Lambeth Libraries, and the newspaper was found on a train.

The thread is silk and once belonged to my Nana.

It measures 15 x 21cms, and comes unframed.

Please note, if you live outside the EU you may be responsible to pay import duties or taxes, in accordance with your country's customs laws.

You can find out more about the making of my work on my blog (, and on Instagram.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give me a shout.

Thank you,
