What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

Flights of Fancy

Jeroen van Kesteren

Measuring between 15 and 20 inches high, these beautiful flying machines are entirely handmade by Netherland-based artist Jeroen van Kesteren. He describes them as Victorian Flying Machines. They are part of a personal project the artist calls Orphanage for Lost Adventures, which clearly needs its own children’s book! Primarily constructed of cardboard, aluminum foil, adhesives, and an assortment of papers, each amazingly-detailed airship takes van Kesteren around a month to create.

And of course, I couldn’t resist a little theme music…

Anyway, check out van Kesteren on Pinterest.
