Georgia Russell is a Scottish visual artist who loves France and old books. Strolling along the banks of the Seine, she met booksellers and fell under the charm of their works. She read them, transformed them and deployed her creativity with a scalpel sculpting these remains of the past, with rapid and precise repeated gestures. This passion gave birth to her work for the Blanc de Blancs gift box.
