(paper, encyclopedia illustration and text)

contour images of letters,
gradual metamorphoses

an aircraft heavier than air

or just
the dreamy side
of wind


This I made on Saturday, in good company. The translation I made up just now, I think I'll always prefer Finnish, even though I constantly find myself thinking in English.

It is winter here, today. I believe there is snow, but I don't know for certain. I'll find out later in the day, now I'm still enjoying the warm nest I've built in my bed. If only I had some extra chairs I'd make a tent out of blankets.

Someone is seriously avoiding adulthood here.


  1. I love this!!!!!

    Do you sell things like this?! I want one!!


  2. I think I'm going to put most of these on Etsy once Christmas is over, but for some of these I have other plans.

    Maybe we can do that swap thingy, either by mail, or when I'm in London?

    Cutting up books for poetry is my new favourite thing :)

  3. Lovely. Poetry idea is brilliant.

  4. This is my absolute favorite one so far. Beautiful poetry within beautiful visual poetry. I'd love to join in on a swap after the holidays.

  5. Ooohh - this sounds so exciting!! When are you in London? That would be fab and we could maybe even meet up.

    I am in the process of (trying) to open up a shop and am going to put some of my books in there as well as other things - a bit nervous though as it's a new venture . . . .

    Let me know.



Please leave a message, I'd love to hear from you.
