Mary Delany

I discovered this wonderful post at Anthology Mag about Mary Delany and Molly Peacock’s book on Mrs. Delany’s life,'The Paper Garden'. New York Times book review is a must read and an excerpt from 'The Paper Garden'. More delectable collages by Mary Delany at The British Museum.

Here is the best part, she didn't start creating these wonderful pieces of art until she was 72! And that gives me hope.
