Angela Carter Illustration Competition

There was an illustration competition this year to create pieces based on Angela Carter's collection of short stories in The Bloody Chamber.
I love this book of short stories.
I was in high school when I read it and I was inspired to create a piece for my end of year art project. It was a book which one person held open while someone else took the ribbon at the end of page and walked backwards - it was one long piece of paper folded many times, so the story unfurled and the illustrations revealed a condensed version of the story The Company of Wolves.
This is the link showing the winning illustration entries (there are some very nice pieces here):
