Robert Ryan & The Book Of Lost Things

The saying goes..."Don't judge a book by its cover"

Yeah...I'm really bad at that. I'll admit it. About maybe a year ago I spotted The Book of Lost Things by John Connoly at Borders. The cover was so beautiful but I wasn't about to pay $24 or whatever it cost there. To my detriment, I didn't write the name or author...relying on the striking cover to allow me to find it again...
That didn't happen until about 2 months ago when I can across it at the bookstore I worked at. I was so happy to finally be able to own it! 
In the end, the story matched up with the cover it was so hauntingly beautiful and fantastical. I loved it. *Highly Recommended* 

Now, by chance I came across a post on Free People that highlighted right away the paper cut art of Robert Ryan. I noticed immediately that the style matched my beloved book! Hurray!

I hope you enjoy his fine paper art skills...creating these seems basically impossible to me my goodness!
