The latest piece of magic to come out of the Rifle Paper Co. studios is their stunning new lookbook. I haven't been lucky enough to see it in full, like many I've only just seen the tantalising snippets they've shared on their website and Facebook pages, but oh my I could not resist sharing my two colourful favourites here. Anna teamed up with floral stylist Amy Merrick and photographer Alpha Smoot to create some of the most beautiful product styling I've seen in a wee while. They are the kind of images that render you almost speechless; inspire you in ways you can only hope to be inspired and gift you with an ache in the pit of your creative soul. Do you know what I mean!?
As I said these two pages are my absolute favourites! I love how they've combined cut outs of Anna's painted motifs with Amy's real blooms, they sit beside each other so perfectly to create the prettiest 2d / 3d floral display ever! These images are pieces of art in themselves, as I am sure the rest of the lookbook will be too, and I would happily hang the 'stop and smell the roses' photograph above on my studio wall. But until these lovely ladies decide to release these images as prints (surely it is only a matter of time!?) I am contenting myself with their Secret Garden Calendar (bought in the UK from Papermash).
