Six Feet Under
If print is dying, then let Sneha Arora see to the funeral arrangements. On yellowing pages from old novels, she digitally prints graceful zebras and charcoal owls, preserving and presenting them with the cold air of a funeral director. But don’t RIP her apart yet. These, the NIFT graduate frames (no new books are harmed in the process) and sells under her label Copy Cat that offers a whole bunch of other upcycled goodies. bpb loves the set of three actual bow ties pressed against a story book page and framed. This is noose to you?
What we love most about this Cat’s products, though, are that they are anti-kitsch. No Mother India inspired diary or pop coloured lotus clutch bag. Mostly muted shades of olive greens and browns, colouring table lamps with booze bottle stands and pretty notebooks printed with birds. Look out for her range of soon to be introduced recycled cushion covers and bags.
For now, the Kolkata-based designer is operating solely through her Facebook page and will courier your order against a bank transfer or cheque payment. But in a week’s time all Copy Cat products will be available on www.quirkoshop.com.
PS: For her next project, Sneha’s looking for dictionaries on their last breath, so if there’s a book shelf casualty you hear about, you know who to call.
