Papercut for 'The Seance' by Himmapaan Papercut for 'The Seance' by Himmapaan
I heard this evening that John Harwood's novel The Séance (published by Random House) will be available in stores this week, so I was prompted to upload this papercut I did for its jacket design.

The jacket and cover itself is printed just in black, so you won't know how the original was created - unless you happen to see this. I think I was fairly close to developing a twitch by the end of it. I'd also worn out about a dozen scalpel blades.

When I get sent my artist's copies of the novel, I'll post the printed jacket too.

My apologies that I don't have a much better photograph than this.

{It also belongs to a rather curious category. It is both a papercraft and an illustration - but DA doesn't allow for both.}

This is an amazing artwork your paper cut artwork can even go more heart touching if you do much in paper cut, and which we all expect from you.

That is just insane, but of course, in the best possible way! (I'd have somehow managed to destroy most if not all of it if I'd attempted it however!)

I'm afraid I can't remember (I still don't have my original back), but it was probably about 150 x 225mm.
