Cut & Turn




These delicate, hand-cut paper letters are the work of Japanese paper artist Aoyama Hina, now living in Paris. Hina began doing her lacy paper cuts, as she refers to them, about 11 years ago using only a simple pair of scissors, patience and ingenuity. She also does paper-cut illustration work, but her series of hand-lettering artworks are a knock-out. See more of her intricate paper-cuts on Flickr. I've seen others do some beautiful and intricate paper-cut artworks in the past, but this is the smallest and most detailed I have yet seen. Pretty incredible work.
