If you’re looking for a unique memento of your shop, house or business, and all done in an eco-friendly way, then artist Bob Follen may well be your man.

Bob, of Osborne Place, Todmorden, specialises in producing model cards of building sections or frontages, each with brickwork intricately carved and painted, and all using recycled cardboard.

Since moving north from London at the end of last year with his partner Carla Jones, Bob has been working on designs of a range of buildings, including many local ones, which are created from recycled cardboard, creating art from something that would once have been thrown away as waste.
