BOZKA_RYDLEWSKA_Illustration_Pattern_Papercraft_13

The Patternbank team spotted these interesting three dimensional illustrations by Polish designer Bozka Rydlewska. We were drawn in by the amazing ornamental detail and sheer beauty of these sculptured paper statements. Bozka’s 3D pop up paper works are a incredible mix of structured depth and botanical illustrations that grab your attention. Her works have appeared in books “Atlas of Illustration” (Maomao, Barcelona), “Semi-permanent 2011″ and Taschen’s “Illustration Now! 5″. See more on her portfolio site bozka.com
