Justin Rowe is a paper artist and book sculptor. 

In 2010  he was asked to make an eye-catching window display for Cambridge University Press bookshop. The result was a series of book sculptures based on myth and fairytale that were auctioned for charity. The artworks proved so popular that he continued to make them for personal collectors and corporate clients including a major exhibition for Literature Week at the British Academy in London.
