If you’ve been a fan of Nikki McClure’s poster art and calendars, this is your chance to collect them in book form. I’ve enjoyed her always inspiring and often perplexing papercut works for many mystified years. This time we get some enlightening commentary to go along with each, though you might want to just stretch your perplexed muscles instead.

A new collection of renowned artist Nikki McClure’s stunning papercuts, with a contemporary, community-minded message

Gather, Navigate, Welcome, Fortify, Surrender, Save, Listen, Make Mistakes. These are some of the messages renowned artist Nikki McClure affirms in this gorgeous monograph of her papercuts. Organized by season, McClure’s work reminds us of the important things such as the change of seasons, slowing down the world for a moment so we can actually experience it, and looking up at the stars to dream.

In a follow-up to her gorgeous monograph Collect Raindrops, You Are Not Too Late is a new collection of McClure’s original papercuts that have appeared in her beloved yearly calendars. All cut from a single piece of black paper with an X-Acto knife, McClure’s artwork features compelling images of everyday life, often accompanied by a powerful verb that inspires the viewer to action. McClure shares more than images, though, in this new book, interweaving her memories and making of the future, offering insight into her creative life.
