The Golden Set / 15 Handmade Paper Envelopes / 2011 by Furze Chan.
“The definition of an envelope was redefined as: 
An enclosed paper pocket with one or more openings.
Under this definition, experiments were carried out to explore the possibility of envelope forms, disregarding their functional usage. 
Hand-torn golden paper pieces were applied onto geometrically shaped white envelopes.
The envelope paper is vintage typing paper.”

The Great Omar Peacock by The Makerie Studio.
Life size reproduction of a peacock inspired by the cover of The Great Omar, a collection of Persian poems known as the most precious volume ever bound. The sculpture was produced for London paper merchants Shepherds Bookbinders using papers from their range, and is currently displayed in their Mayfair store.
I cannot express in words how much I love this.
