Amanda White's English Writers' Houses

The artist Amanda White has created a stunning collection of cut paper collages depicting well known English writers’ houses. Using old magazines, she has created images of the homes of likes of Beatrix Potter, Virginia Woolf, Keats, Lord Byron, Charles Dickens (and many more). Each image is a unique blend of patterns and intricate details as she carefully captures the place our favourite writers would have called home.

Beatrix Potter | Hill Top Farm



Jane and Cassandra Austen



The Brontes | Haworth Parsonage

Virginia Woolf | Monks House

William Wordsworth | Dove Cottage




How perfect would these be as a gift for a book-lover in your life?  I'm still trying to decide which one my favourite is, I think Beatrix Potter may be it (for now, anyway....).  This is just a handful of the designs which Amanda White has created, you can view the rest of her collection here.

These are wonderful! I love collages, and it's such an apt choice of subject.
