I wish I understood Russian… At least, today I do. Then, I’d be able to tell you so much more about People Too, the team behind this incredible paper art. Check it out. And, then check it out again – but, look closer this time. The detail is simply incredible.

From what I can gather, People Too is the collaborative effort of two russian designers, Alexei Lyapunoy and Lena Ehrlich. Using a range of knives, scissors, tweezers, and other tools on wire, not to mention a combination of construction and specialty papers, they create not only miniature furniture and figures, but also entire sets for the pieces.

I don’t know exactly how they do it, but I can tell you the intricacy is mind-blowing. See what you think…

People Too have so much more to see on their site here. It really is worth a look. Promise. You can also buy their prints from Artflakes.

Alexei Lyapunoy and Lena Ehrlich – if you are reading this, a translate button on your site to English would be most appreciated! Google Translate can only assist so much.

One of these days I’ll get this whole thing straight!! Glad Monday was swell though 🙂 !!

Geez, the details are absolutely amazing!

Kinda’ blows the mind, doesn’t it?

I’ve been trying to learn Russian FOREVER. It is a tough language. I can read cyrillic and have the accent down (my grandfather was Belarusian) but the grammar is mind-boggling. I just can’t get my arms around it. Good luck!

Ha! I should get you to translate the site for me! If only I had known before I spent all that time on Google translate! 🙂

Trust me. Google translate is a better choice 🙂

Where do you find this stuff? Russia…of course. I love it..its almost midnight and I want to get my tweezers and paper and a bit of glue out to play. Julie

Can you imagine the patience, Julie? Blows my mind!

Wow, love it! You always feature the most weird & wonderful things! *high five*

Cheers Marica – high praise from the design guru!!! 🙂
