I bought both this Deep Space and The Universe papers unsure which one would look the best for my handmade TARDIS, but I picked this one!
I am planning on sending Peter Capaldi a fan letter and thanking him for being such an excellent Doctor and for finally, after all of the years that I have watched the show, a character that I can claim to be, My Doctor.
Seeing as how I am in the states and his agency is in London UK, I have no idea if it will get to him or if I will hear back from him now that he has left the show, but I hope that whoever is sorting his mail will see the envelope (that I also made from Deep Space), that is holding my card and letter, and that he will feel compelled to send it on to Peter.
Thank you Ella and Viv Paper Company, for having these papers for us. There are many Space themed papers and stacks out there but none have the beauty of these images. I do not know if they are images from NASA, the Hubble or the ISS, but wherever they come from they look like what I think deep space looks like.
I have many astronomy club members in my family and I would love to see this line of paper continue. If it is to be discontinued, let me know so I can buy up some of the remaining stock!!!
I have a project I'm doing for my niece and she is very interested in astronomy (one of several interests she has to be fair). She wanted the project to be done in night sky/starred paper. This will be perfect for my project. It has lots to look at. I like the different color and sizes of the many stars. It is a true they are a little wonky if you really look at them closely (not precise pinpoints), but the overall effect of the paper's image is amazing enough to make up for that for most paper projects I should think. It certainly works for me. This is mid-weight and printed on one side.
Clearly not a NASA photograph, this art really does evoke a brightly glowing nebula, a star nursery, partially obscured by black dust and gas. It is undeniably an unusual and successful art for the StarWars reboot and the trendy cartoon rocket ships. Unfortunately they did get a bit dot happy. White paint splatters cover the whole sheet -- they are fine dots just a little too even for me, and look like a mister pattern instead of a scattering of stars. Besides my overtly opinionated quibbles, I do like this paper. That ethereal glow can only happen in deep space with millions of stars, yet Ella and Viv caught the whole thing. I picked up a number of sheets. I cut down half of it for collage -- it becomes abstract patterns of dark and light that have so much character, more then anything else in my huge collection of art papers. I've got a handmade art journal in mind with this and the other papers in this line, as well. Good art and good buy (in spite of the my complaints).
