John Dilnot is a man after my own heart. Using clipped illustrations of birds and months he arranges them to create beautiful dioramas within wooden boxes. Dilnot frequently lines the interiors with antique maps and arranges the birds in small flocks, setting them on perpetual cartographic journeys. You can see an archive of John’s work here and some boxes that are still available here. He also sells prints and postcards, just get in touch. Y’know, I was in a terrible New Age band in high school called Perpetual Cartographic Journeys but that’s a story for another time. (via staceythinx)
