Roald Dahl Papercuts

Matilda

Here is paper artist Jayme McGowan at work illustrating her favorite Roald Dahl books.

Why Dahl?:

I wanted to do a series of pieces based on favorite books from my childhood, choosing just one author to narrow the theme. I picked books that I would enjoy re-reading now, as an adult, and Roald Dahl was the natural choice. I’ve always loved his dark humor, and the images his writing creates in my mind are so vivid — I knew they’d be fun to illustrate. Picking just five was tough, but I settled on MatildaCharlie and the Chocolate Factory,Fantastic Mr. FoxThe BFG and, of course, James and the Giant Peach.
